Opening Prayer for Each Day (See Novena Day 1)
Day 5 Prayer:
The flowers I will make today for the garden of my heart are bluebells.
I will make them by being cheerful.
When You were a child like me,
You were never mean or unpleasant.
I want to be cheerful just like You were!
Today I will try very hard to be cheerful
at home, at school and at play.
I will try to be just like You, Jesus.
Each time I smile, it will be a beautiful bluebell
for the garden of my heart.
I hope You will like my bluebells, Jesus.
Sometimes they are very hard to make.
Dear Mother Mary and Saint Joseph,
please help me to be cheerful today.
Draw a picture of yourself making bluebells in your heart for Jesus.
Ad Jesum per Mariam,
