Baptism By The Pool

We attended a Catholic Baptism recently for a friends child at their home in Bonita, California last week and it was really a beautiful ceremony. And it was especially nice because it was a really hot day and the religious event for their young child was held right by their lovely looking swimming pool. baptism by the pool

The landscaping was manicured to perfection and the pool had the absolutely clearest, bluest water I’ve ever seen. Seeing the pool water looking as good as it did made me want to get a pool for my own yard.

But having a friend whom also owns a pool reminded me of the reasons why I am apprehensive about getting one. First, the pool upkeep is a lot of work and not something I want to be doing after working fifty or sixty hours or more at my regular job. My friend tells me mainlining a pool is a ton of work and he has said that if he had to do it all over a again he would have serious reservation about it.

Having mentioned about how beautiful the Baptismal ceremony was and commenting on how awesome the pool looked to the host, they informed me that it is much easier to maintain the pool if you have a pool expert to take care of it for you.

They both mentioned how they find it much easier and affordable to just hire a professional Bonita pool cleaning company in Bonita to maintain the swimming pool; that way they get to enjoy the pool while not having to maintain the pool themselves and become resentful of it!

It was really a beautiful day at their home as we sent the afternoon lounging and relaxing by the hosts pool celebrating the baptism of their youngest child. The child that was baptized received lots of nice jewelry he really liked the silver rosary we bought for him.

On the way home my wife and I spoke about how nice it was to celebrate the baptism at their home by the pool. And we discussed how nice it would be to have a pool ourselves! She brought up my past reservations about the pool upkeep and I mentioned how inexpensive the pool cleaning service and maintenance was.

She couldn’t believe how inexpensive the pool maintenance was either so since we both thoroughly enjoy the day by the pool maybe it is time to reconsider whether or not would should start looking into buying a pool.!!!

Catholic Necklaces

Great Catholic Gift Ideas

Some folks often wonder about what to get family members and friends for gifts? Well do not feel bad as that is often the case with most people when it comes to buying a gift for others. They simply do not know what to get children, young adults and even adults for a present. If they are Catholics then one solution would be to consider a religious related gift.

Specifically a Catholic gift. There are a lot of Catholic gifts you could possibly give one as a a present. One of my favorites is a St. Anthony medal I got as a gift from my parents when I was a senior in high school.

I’m in my forties now however I still wear that necklace on a daily basis as it is one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry! Mostly because of the sentimental value it holds as again it was give to me by my parents whom are not longer alive. With that being said, I really like the metal with all of its detailed engraving and also because Saint Anthony is one of my favorite Patron Saints.

Pope John Paul II

Catholic Gifts

Now that it has been announced that Pope John Paul II has been a named a saint and is awaiting canonization on April 27 I think I will be getting a Saint John Paul Medal to go along with my Saint Anthony medal.

Pope John Paul was Pope pretty much for most my life and I think it is only fitting that I honor that great Pope with a medal so that I memorialize his life and he is worn daily by me right near to my heart.

How a Pearl Forms

A pearl is developed inside the shell of mollusk – namely a mussel or oyster, with the majority of gems farmed or cultured for use.

Jewelry That Glistens Everywhere

The Reward That Glistens In Each individual Land

Three thousand several years in the past, when the chief of one particular tribal group selected to go to a second tribal chief, he brought with him a lot of presents. Between individuals presents, he invariably provided some big and shiny parts of jewelry.

That jewellery was without doubt made out of gold. It may well have involved bracelets, rings, chains and even a charming, gold jewel scenario. That long-accepted reward, the reward of jewellery, has identified favor with lots of generations, and it has come to be a preferred reward in international locations all in excess of the globe.

Often the reward of jewellery has been offered only to individuals who were viewed as deserving recipients. For example, a Female Scout or Boy Scout pin would be given to a younger human being who had demonstrated the characteristics of a Scout. Likewise, the substantial ring worn by American armed service staff symbolizes the willingness of those people adult males (and ladies) to sacrifice for the citizens of their homeland.

Tourists usually obtain jewelry to give to beloved kinds back again home. Jewelry ordinarily does an outstanding jo

of “speaking” for the area of the entire world in which it was designed. A traveler to Rome could possibly want to obtain a cameo, a well-known jewelry piece in Italy. A traveler to Santa Fe, New Mexico might spend a superior little bit of time seeking at that area’s Indian jewellery.

The Native Individuals of New Mexico make lots of colourful bracelets and a huge quantity of necklaces. Some Indian stores also sell earrings. Acquiring a pin among the the several displays of Indian jewellery can be a problem. Just one lady who responded to that problem did discover what she desired. She bought a attractive turquoise and pink pin at a shop shut to the Grand Canyon.

Perhaps a real appreciation for the international charm of jewelry calls for an acquaintance with a world faith. For instance, Catholicism is practiced in many different nations around the world, and most Catholics take pleasure in providing jewelry to mates and loved ones. Jewelry frequently will come inside the items that are presented at weddings or at the time of a baptism.

Occasionally an toddler wears earrings at the time of a baptism. A good numb

er of Hispanic females approach for their infant daughters to have their ears pierced. They anticipate these ladies to make a habit of carrying earrings. Curiously, the Hispanic women are not the only types who have that hope. Numerous new mothers in the Center East make very similar strategies, relating to the use of pierced earrings by their young daughters.

Nonetheless Catholicism and Islam are not the only two world religions that underline the worth of jewelry. Just walk into any Baha’i “bookstore.” There you will discover lots of distinct items of jewelry. All of them—rings, necklaces, pins and bracelets—have on them a Baha’i symbol. All of those people parts of jewelry have come to be preferred present things.

A short while ago a young, male Baha’i in Los Angeles preferred to give himself a gold chain from the community Baha’i bookstore. He preferred to acquaint his shoppers with his family’s potent ties to the Faith. That wish produced after that same youthful guy had frequented the household of an elderly man, a gentleman who had recognized the grandfather of that young grownup.
