Sacred Heart Cameo and Saints Religious Medals Bracelet

Most sweet Jesus, 
humbly kneeling at Thy feet, 
we renew the consecration 
of our family to Thy Divine Heart. 
Be Thou our King forever. 
In Thee we have full 
and entire confidence. 
May Thy spirit penetrate our thoughts, 
our desires, our words and our works. 
Bless our undertakings, 
share in our joys, 
in our trials and in our labours. 
Grant us to know Thee more, 
to serve Thee without faltering.

By the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 
Queen of Peace, 
set up Thy kingdom in our country. 
Enter closely 
into the midst of our families 
and make them Thine own 
through the solemn enthronement
of Thy Sacred Heart 
so that no one cry 
may respond from home to home. 
May the triumphant Heart of Jesus 
be everywhere loved, 
blessed and glorified forever! 
Honour and glory 
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary. 
Sacred Heart of Jesus
 protect our families.


I guess I have been feeling nostalgic.  I have been inspired to create vintage-style bracelets lately using some vintage medals and beads.

I love the outcome of this bracelet with the vintage carved roses with this very unique style of chain using them to give Glory to Our Precious Sacred Heart of Jesus

I claim total and complete protection for my life and my family. Lord JESUS, keep me free today from evil, sin, temptation, Satan's attacks and afflictions, fear of darkness, fear of man, sickness, diseases, doubts, anger, all calamities and from all that is not of thy Kingdom.

I Love you, Jesus
I Adore you, Jesus

Our Lady of Lourdes Locket Shrine Rosary Religious Necklace

O Holy Virgin,  
in the midst of Your days of glory,  
do not forget the sorrows of this earth.  
Cast a merciful glance upon those who are suffering
 struggling against difficulties, 
 with their lips constantly pressed 
against life’s bitter cup.  
Have pity on those who love each other
 and are separated. 
Have pity on our rebellious hearts.
 Have pity on our weak faith. 
Have pity on those who weep, 
on those who pray, 
on those who fear.
 Grant hope and peace to all. 

I created this locket shrine necklace honoring Our Beautiful Lady of Lourdes using a vintage rosary and creating it as a necklace.
Inside locket I added a tiny figural image of Our Lady of Lourdes a vintage crucifix and a beautiful acrylic rose and a beautiful color image of St. Rose of Lima.

Today I had a wonderful experience with my 2 yr old granddaughter. I have a picture of Our Lady of Lourdes in my room and my granddaughter loved it and wanted me to take her to Wal-Mart to buy her one, she thinks Wal-Mart may sell them and I explained to her they don't have them there, she then told me to take her to Target to find one, that just filled me with so much joy that she expressed so much love for Our Lady of Lourdes.
