Today’s Blessing Prayer: Tuesday greetings and blessings to all. I hope this finds you well and enjoying this first Tuesday of the New Year. The thermometer in our kitchen read 9 degrees outside this morning and there is no end in sight to these cold temperatures. I guess we are in for a very cold winter this year!
As seems to be the norm these days, the beginning of 2018, has many parts of the world on edge. The shadow of terrorism and violence has found its way into the hope of this new year. So, this morning I pray for God’s blessing upon all of us. I pray God’s blessing will help us navigate through the struggles, challenges, disappointments and sadness of life. That it will help us find the joy, the grace, the wonderfulness and the gift of God’s presence this day wherever we travel to, in whomever we meet, in whatever we need to do and most importantly within ourselves so that we will never give up. Loving God, bless us this day with the wisdom, the understanding, the knowledge, the courage, the good judgment, the reverence and the wonder and awe to trust in and have faith that you are alive within us, that you love us and that you will never leave us alone in the midst of the perils of life. Amen – Tuesday blessings to all, be safe, be warm! Peace in Christ's Passion...Fr. Paul
