Mornings with Mary

Dearest Lady of Guadalupe,
fruitful Mother of holiness,
teach me your ways of gentleness and strength.
Hear my humble prayer offered with heartfelt confidence.

I love devotional candles.
It is my habit to light one and say a prayer
before I begin to work in my studio.

When the candle is gone,
they make a perfect little vase.

I also made these little art blocks.
You can find them on my 

I believe this is the beginning to the best week ever!


  1. Beautiful post - wish I could get my hands on those small candles!! Love those art blocks!!!!

  2. yes, lovely scene. so simple, but meaningful. less is more.

  3. I'd say that this qualifies as one of those offerings that the Bible calls "fragrant."

    Riversong of Holiness

  4. Good morning Lisa. Your picture gave me a special smile of recognition. Your vignette is sweet and I happen to have that book and Guadalupe candle as well. I'm feeling very connected across the miles.

  5. Love your art blocks Lisa. Hi, how are you doing? Great I hope! Love your simplicity. Take care of yourself. ::hugs::

  6. Love the votive as vase. Looks like yellow coneflowers (echinacea) but maybe blackeyed susans? They are lovely. Beautiful visit here today.

  7. simple, spiritual
    straight to Mary's heart with love
    bringing peace to you

    I love this!

  8. my darling priti,
    the world feels as right as rain when you are apart of it! thank you for a gorgeous beginning to this blessed new week.
    dreaming of your mary's.....

  9. What a simple idea and such a lovely way to begin the day!!!
    thank you!

  10. Much reverence for your humble and honest prayers.

  11. You always have an eye for the beautiful details of life Lisa :-) Love that little pebble with the heart and wings, did you make that? Drooling over your art blocks too, they look amazing together. The one second from right reminds me of the piece you did in (I think?) Steph's journal, in her soft expression and the gorgeous texture you've created. I hope your prediction for the best week ever is coming true! x

  12. Lisa, I am popping in to say hello to you (and Mary). I hope you're having a wonderfully creative summer full of all good things. Thinking of you! xo

  13. Like everything about the arrangement of things you treasure. I have a few of those candles as well, I can never pass them up.
