Gratitude for what I have been given…

We must find a way to replace yearning for what life has withheld from us with gratitude for what we have been given.

Monday’s reminder


Take time to notice. The gifts may appear simple but they can be life-changing.

Happy Monday!

Love’s greatest gift…


All is Ready



The days are fewer. In preparation for Christmas – we shop, bake, create cards, decorate home and hearth, attend one last ‘pageant’ rehearsal…- and still feel pushed, incomplete. All of these details, important, and yet never-ending.
And all along other preparation coincide. These details are the call of this season – the work done not by us but for us. Breath, be still, and remember — for truly – All is Ready.

My soul magnifies the Lord!
All is ready
Stable prepared
Shepherds working
Magi journeying
Gifts are chosen
My soul magnifies the Lord!
A city awaits
Crowded and bustling
Stars are shining
People expecting
A drama unfolding
My soul magnifies the Lord!
The Lord is coming
To save his people
Mary’s obedience
Jesus’ willingness
Your gracious gift to us
My soul magnifies the Lord!
