Brothers, by the time you read this article from me, Thanksgiving will be a memory. What will be your memory? Pain, sickness, isolation, despair, doubt, job loss, even death of a loved one? I hope not and we ask our God to help us through these trying times. My prayer for you during this Advent season and my prayer for you at Christmas is one of my favorites from St Theresa.
“May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing that you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and, love. It is there for each and every one of us.”
Thank you, St. Theresa, for the inspiration to continue on the path God has intended. From Jackie and me, Merry and blessed Christmas and a better New Year.
