Weekly Quotes & Prayers (202)

No music He Heard, and no angels He saw

As He lay in His wrapping of linen and straw;

And the ox and the ass could not kneel and adore

For the poor vreatures never were angels before.

The palace He found was an old cattle stall

With a broken-down roof and a windowless wall,

And it looked so ashamed of its spider-worn wood;

But it tried to be Heaven, as well as it could.

A dull stable lantern that hung dark and dim

Was the small bit of moonlight that flickered on Him.

Now it longed to be beautiful, starry and bright,

And it sputtered and wept for the dearth of its light.

But a Lady of Beauty stood over His head

While she gathered the strewings about for His bed.

And her soul was as sweet as a fresh-budding rose

And as white as the fusion of myriad snows.

And her hands did not soil this immaculate prize,

And her breath did not sully the bloom in His eyes.

On her breast sweet and safe could He slumber and nod;

This lily-white village-maid, Mother of God.

Dear Lord, You Have Given Me So Many Gifts. Each Day Help Me To Give You Thanks For These Gifts Especially As We Go Into The Christmas Holidays. Help Me Use These Gifts And Develop Them To The Best Of My Ability. Be My Strength When I Face The Tempation To Steal The Gifts Of Others In Whatever Form They May Be.

Lord,

sometimes I get angry.

So did You.

This day, whenever I find myself

angry, help me to accept that

anger as a reality.

This day, help me to realize that

my anger is itself your gift, sent

to me to work through wisely.

This day, fill me with Your love

and understanding,

so that I may control my anger

and direct it into things

that make Your creation better

for us all.

Amen.

When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.
They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.
They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.
Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.
We salute each and every on of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with up here today,
And those who rest in a grave.
So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.
“TRIBUTE” by Joanna Fuchs

Loving God, help me this day to rest, for at least

afew moments, in your loving embrace.

Let me rest even though my mind is racing and

filled with anxiety and doubt. Let met rust,

even in my imperfection, that you love me

this day, exactly as I am.

Help me strive for perfection as you have called

me to do, but grant me the grace not to be

overwhelmed witht he struggle and to be

satisfied with the progress even if it is slow

and at times unsatisfactory. I offer you this

prayer in faith and in the confidence you’ve

given me int he name of Jesus your son.

AMEN
