Angel of God, My Guardian Dear...


I love you, good angel, 
My guardian dear.
I know that I'll always 
Be safe while you're near.

Enjoying his new colored pencils... 
... while coloring this beautiful Guardian Angel Coloring Page

Stay with me, angel, 
Through daytime and night. 
Help me especially to 
Do what is right. 

Illustrating an Altar from A Catholic How-to-Draw For Ages 3-Up...
... with Guardian Angels on each side.  

And at last, my dear angel, 
When this life is o'er.
Just set me down safely
At heaven's gold door. 


I hope you all had a very lovely and blessed feast of the Holy Guardian Angels!
 (...which also happens to be our 14th Wedding Anniversary!) 

Catholic Treasure Box Book 1 and Angel in the Waters 

For today I have two sweet children's books to giveaway:  Catholic Treasure Box Book 1 and Angel in the Waters!   These books are always pulled out in our home during the month of October in honor of the Holy Guardian Angels and Respect Life Month!  If you would like to be entered just leave a comment on this post, and make sure your email address is either linked on your profile or included in the comment so that I am able to contact you if you win. 

A Study Guide for Angel in the Waters  can be found in Catholic Mosaic

I'm hosting a number of little giveaways this week including a copy of Catholic Mosaic, a copy of St. Therese the Little Flower Daily Journal, and still have a couple more items to give away tomorrow and Friday, so be sure to check back! The giveaways will all be open through Sunday, October 6th and I will update each post and contact the winners next Monday, October 7th.


UPDATE:
Thank you all for participating!

"When tempted, invoke your Angel. He is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him: He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel."
~St. John Bosco

Holy Guardian Angels, Pray for Us!

    1. Check Cathswap. I think that might be where I purchased my copy years ago. It was made by Sara Johnson (of CHC) so you could contact CHC and ask them directly. I know they offer A Catholic How-to-Draw E-Book by a different author, but the same idea. I hope that helps!

  64. Just read "Angel in the Waters" today for pro-life march in Washington and all the pro-life events today - January 22, 2014! What an amazing book and I'm so glad to have it! Will do a little something from Catholic Mosaic, too! A great little "unit" for science/health, religion, handwriting, literature....!
