Advent Week Three

A Prayer for the Third Week in Advent – a Prayer for Joy

Holy Father, Lord of all creation, you have power and might over heaven and earth. You speak a word and mountains move. You whisper and the sea obeys. You turn darkness into light, and transform broken things into beauty. Lord, help me to see the wonder in your creation, to find the joy amidst the trials. For in you I can rejoice and be glad. No matter what the world brings, I can find joy in you. Help me to celebrate with joy and gladness this Christmas, for in you all things are made new. You are working to restore and remake all the broken pieces of my life and of this world. In you I will be glad and rejoice forever, delighting in you with joy. All this I pray through Jesus Christ, your only son, you greatest gift to this world. Amen.

Isaiah 65:17-18 (NIV)

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever
    in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
    and its people a joy.

Isaiah 65:17-18 (NIV)

And the laughter….So much laughter. 😄

Thank you for giving me All of you, and accepting All

Of me, for in doing so, We became an Us ❤️

For every single moment of our journey and life

Together. The ups. The downs. The detours.

No matter where my journey takes me, you will be there. For it was through you that I learned to see, love and accept myself. You gave me the strength to grow……and I will honor your memory by continuing to do so…….you gave me my wings baby,,,,I’m gonna Fly. I. Love. You ❤️❤️❤️

His Journey
Don’t think of him as gone away, his journey’s just begun,
Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting, from the sorrows and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days or years.
Think how he must be wishing, that we could know today,
How nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of him as living, in the hearts of those he touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost, and he was/is loved so much. (author unknown)

30 Days Of Gratitude….Day 28 🙏

Happy Thanksgiving to All 🙏❤️

“Early morning blessings rise with the sun.

The golden glow lights everything afire.

Thanksgiving Blessings are felt as the

warm glow of a new day emerges.

It is also a reminder to keep a grateful heart

not just today

but everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving from my heart to yours. 🙏💛☀️
