here. And if you are interested in backyard beekeeping, you can see my beekeeper's diary here.
We're still neophyte beekeepers, but learning is half the fun. And you'd be surprised how often bees come up in the writings of the Church and how many saints and holy men and women were beekeepers.
Here's a bit of trivia you probably don't know. When Lucia of Fatima was professed as a Dorothean sister her mother asked her what she wanted as a gift. Her answer? A beehive. Can you imagine carting that on a bus or train? I imagine the area around her mother cleared out pretty fast.
So now I have another intercessor to join St. Ambrose, St. Valentine, and St. Rita. Sr. Lucia of Fatima, please pray for our girls to survive this cold, snowy winter and start off strong and healthy in the Spring.
