“To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul!”
"Let's begin this week with a deeply felt prayer.
Even if we don't know exactly what we need or long for,
today, let's try to express our desire for God's help and assistance."
I sense your power, your might
and I stand in awe, painfully aware
of how poor and weak I am before you.
As I begin this Advent journey,
teach me to turn to you in my fear and sorrow.
Let me remember that you can look deep into my heart
and that you wlll keep me safe with your love.
I lift my soul to you with my weak hands
and beg for your help and forgiveness.
And I feel joy!"
Good morning my friends! I do hope these brief Advent prayers and reflections help us all to live these days more aware of the real meaning of Christmas, as we try to live this time of preparation in a deeper way.
We are working on the books from early this morning, but Yolanda had to go to the bank, so I am taking advantage of this little break to "pray online" and share with all of you.
It's raining again today - but a gentle rain, at least so far!
On Saturday I went out and bought some poinsettia plants for both chapels - two red ones for the school chapel, and one red and one white for the chapel up here in the convent. The white one I put in front of our Lady. And we have our Advent wreaths in each chapel, as well as a small manger scene. They both look really nice!
Have a great day! Blessings!
