These days where there is so much to ponder and reflect on, there seems so little time to do that. Each weekend has its full quota of parties added on to my already busy schedule. I am becoming quite tired and there is still much to do to get this house and home ready for Christmas. Tree decorating will be done, tourtiere made and maybe some baking this weekend.
I am the kind of person who needs quiet and lots of time to reflect on events. Most of the people around me don’t really understand that I don’t think. They have their own ways to prepare for the holiday and so we clash too often.
I need God’s gifts of love, patience and compassion if I am to reflect him at all. So, this is my morning prayer, God make me more like you today. Give me the gifts I need to make it through this day with grace.
