GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Oh, the Monday before Christmas...it is all at once marvelous and stressful beyond compare.
Particularly now, when we should all be anticipating a wondrous act of selfless giving, it is so incredibly difficult to hear stories of man's inhumanity to man. Please pray for all those suffering and hurting today...and be thankful for all with which you've been blessed; I sure am! Goodness awaits us, friends...
R. Alleluia, alleluia. O Root of Jesse’s stem, sign of God’s love for all his people: come to save us without delay!
