A Recipe for a Happy Home

Written by

All you need is four cups of Love, 2 cups of Loyalty, 3 cups of Forgiveness...Bake it with sunshine and serve daily with generous helpings.

4C Love

2C Loyalty

3C Forgiveness

1C Friendship

5 Spoons Hope

2 Spoons Tenderness

4 Quarts Faith

1 Barrel Laughter

Take Love and Loyalty, mix thoroughly with Faith. Blend it with tenderness, Kindness and Understanding. Add friendship and hope, sprinkle abundantly with laughter. Bake it with sunshine and serve daily with generous helpings. 

I have also collected a few sayings that prove helpful from time to time:

It is what we learn after we think we know it all that counts. 

The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for Saints.

Break bad habits before they get strong enough to break you.

It's easy to be perfect, just follow the advice you gave to others

You can't keep trouble from coming; but you need not give it a chair to sit on.

The Bible is God's love letter to us. It is instructions on how to live and how to develop a relationship with Him. 

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.


LucyMaesMy name is Lucy Maes.  I am a wife, a mother and now a grandmother of five lovely children, all consecrated to Mary our Mother. 

My husband and I have five grown children, two consecrated to God and three married.  We live south of Atlanta, GA.  I am a homemaker, a daily Mass attendant, involved with apostolic work with a form of evangelization enthroning homes to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

I am busy with a couple of jobs in regards to my husband's business, I weekly take care of grandchildren, I am a catechism teacher at our parish, a prayer warrior before an abortion mill once a week, and some healthy projects I am trying to fulfill including a summer garden in which I have the privilege to enjoy God's creation.

All in Jesus' name, I give thanks.
