One of the Lost Arts is alive and well in TEXAS :)

There are a few arts that are long lost and mostly forgotten except by the diligent artisans themselves who painstakingly continue their individual expertise in their respective fields and mediums making the rest of us stand in awe of what seems to be magical whimsy. In fact, behind this magical whimsy, if you look closely, you will find not only talent, long hours, dedication and passion, but also a burning love for their work that produces nothing less than excellence. 

It is said that when you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. And when your passion consumes you (as a true artisans will), you can be sure that there will be little else that produces that wonderful feeling of accomplishment and pride as does finishing a piece that was made with passion, care and dedication... and yes, love. Such can be said about the folks at STAINED GLASS, INC. If you do nothing else, peruse their beautiful work and at least read their ABOUT US which is quite impressive to say the least.

Whether you're looking for religious or non religious art, these folks have you covered. Not only do they manufacture traditional stained glass windows, art work, wall hangings and much more; but also window INSERTS that can easily transform any window and living space into a beautiful array of breathtaking color and light that changes as the day progresses! You really need to go over and take a look at their fine workmanship and offerings. And I hear they have a few special deals going on for Churches and religious organizations too! ;) 

I am very proud and pleased to present these fine folks and their work to my customers and friends. Please share the like with your Pastors and congregations ... I really think you'll be glad you did. Their work is stunning to say the least! 
Oh, yeah ... and please let em know that BattleBeads sent ya! :) 

And um .. while you're browsing for beauty, you may want to even skip over to the BattleBeads website to peruse yet another artisans passion *ahem* ... rosaries, chaplets, religious and non religious costume and fine jewelry. Everything from acrylics to Swarovski crystals and cord to 14k and everything in between. My motto: "I always do my best to accommodate requests!" 

Pssst ... maybe Stained Glass Inc. might even include a BattleBeads link back! ;)

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
