Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God

Loving God, as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children, Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers. Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

 God our creator, we come before You and lift up in prayer all mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers to be who gave the gift of life. We give you thanks for their presence, talents and gifts which they share in our church, society and world. May all mothers know of YOUR loving and gentle presence and may they always turn towards YOU in times of joy, sorrow and glory.

Almighty and Eternal God, Lord of both the living and the dead, Your tender mercy embraces all people foreknown to be Yours by faith and a good life. Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary our Mother,  grant Your merciful pardon to all mothers for whom we pray, whether they still are living in this world or have departed from this flesh into the world to come. Especially, dear Lord, grant the requests I now make of You for my own beloved mother. Civita.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

In this I pray

Sidewalks Chalk 1st Anniversary, July 5, 2013.

I believe I was brainstorming that morning for a name. Sidewalk chalk was taken so I went with the plural.  I remember as a child I used to chalk the streets of Philadelphia with color, to play hopscotch or just write anything (cursive) on the concrete pavement and streets.

I remember marking my name, Donna in the 1960’s.  But when the rain came it washed the chalk  away.

Also, the endless pairs of sneakers that hung on the wires of the Streets of Philadelphia.  Yes, I had a pair of white canvas Chuck Taylor’s on a corner somewhere.

How I came up with the name Spellbound84, it was the launch of my Professional Dance Career.  A Dick Foster Production, Spellbound in 1984, Glen Mills PA, Encore Dinner Theater, Pulsations Nightclub Complex.

Remember every picture tells a story.

Thank you Jordan for helping me with the development of my blog.

Also, Muse for constant words of encouragement.

God has blessed my blog.


Blessings : ).

When life knocks you down, roll over and look at the stars!  <3
