Love


Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit and love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thee. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. --Mother Teresa

We love you Maria.

Love,
Mom and Dad, Eddie, Aidan and Blake

There is something that continually draws me to your site and moves me in ways that I am not fully able to understand. It is a message that I am to take action. Thank you for sharing the love of Maria.

God Bless you and your family. As a parent of daughter with an in-operable brain tumor I know your struggles. At 3 months old we were told she had only 6 months, we have had a 9 year battle and thank God for every day we have had to spend with our Emma. After reading her story and visiting your website I couldn't help but pass along some hope and prayers to your family. I believe in the power of prayer, it is through all the prayers we have received over the years that have kept us going and kept Emma alive. She is a miracle just as your Maria is. God Bless and know there are more prayers going out to your family.
