In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

Penny Palace Blessing Ceremony

Thank You for all the wonderful messages of Congratulations and Shared Joy.  Yes, this 3 year, 10 year, or 30 year journey (depending on where you begin your timeline), has been filled with adventures.

A number of people who could not attend said to take photos or a video of the festivities.  Doc has compiled a one-minute video.

The evening began at 7:30 with appetizers in the garage.  Then we proceeded to cut the ribbon which was tied across the front walkway.  The group gathered at the front door where Rev. Shervington did a Bible reading and gave a prayer.  Then a candle was lit and everyone entered the home.  The group proceeded through the house, pausing for readings and blessings in some of the key rooms.  We concluded in the Grand Room with Rev. Shervington asking for blessings upon all who dwell in and who visit the Penny Palace.

Then guests gathered around the dining table for snacks and a celebratory toast.  We even used our real glasses (versus disposables)!  Everyone wanted a tour of the main house; some even wanted to see the Elves Quarters and Dungeon.

It was a long day, yet a befitting mile marker in this incredible journey.

with Joy and Gratitude,
