GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Man, it is hard to catch your breath right now, isn't it? Hustle and bustle doesn't even seem to begin to cover it with all the cooking, shopping, baking, party-prep and attendance...did I mention I am the world's worst gift wrapper? Hmpf.
A little reminder at this time when 24 hours just isn't a long enough day to get everything done...all we need do is pause and reflect. He's around...in every snowflake and greeting card and unexpected gift. Relax... remember why we're going to all this trouble in the first place? A little baby... a little manger...a BIG gift for mankind.
R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever. Justice shall flower in his days, and profound peace, till the moon be no more. May he rule from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.
