Lenten Respite 2

Through this toilsome world,

alas once and only once I pass;

If a good deed I may do to a

suffering fellow man,

let me do it while I can.

No delay, for it is plain

I shall not pass this way again.

Lenten Respite

I could have wealth beyond my dreams, But where is the joy in that?

And I could travel the seven seas, But I would always come back.

Everyone could know my name, And there would be no peace.

I could have undying love, And heartaches still increase.

No, if I were wealthy beyond my dreams ( And where is the joy in that?)

It wouldn’t buy friendship such as yours-- And there IS Joy in that!

And to that let us add:

May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart,

and warmed by the smiles of the people you love.

LENT

The Ultimate Sacrifice

The Lenten season to many people brings thoughts of sacrifice, giving up something in an effort to grow spiritually. In our eyes, we think our sacrifice is great, and in many cases it is; however; it should be remembered we can never outgive God, who made the ultimate sacrifice. You know that neighbor down the street that no one likes? Find a way to be friendly. Listen to someone you don’t enjoy. Smile more. Show an understanding to a friend who’s having a bad day. Add an extra “I love you” to your conversation at home. It is worth it because you are dust and to dust you will return.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because i’m exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good; not evil; success not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.

TEACH ME

Teach me, O Lord, to be sweet and gentle In all the events of life; in Disappointments, in the thoughtlessness Of others, in the insincerity of those I trusted, in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied. Teach me to profit by the Suffering that comes across my path.

May no one be less good for having Come within my influence; no one less Pure, less true, less kind, less noble for having been a fellow-traveler in our Journey toward Eternal Life.

I Am The Christmas Spirit

I enter the home of poverty and cause pale-faced children to open wide their eyes in wonder.

I cause the aged to remember their youth...and to laugh.

I cause the eager feet to climb dark stairways with filled baskets, leaving behind hearts amazed at the goodness of the world.

I cause the prodigal to pause and send to anxious family some little token of love.

I enter dark prison cells, causing scarred manhood to remember what might have been and pointing to better days ahead.

I enter the home of pain, and there lips that are too weak to speak simply tremble in silent, eloquent gratitude.

In a thousand ways, I cause this weary old world to look up into the face of God and, for a few moments, forget everything that is small and wretched.

You see, I am the Christmas Spirit.

Advent Scrutinies

As we approach the holidays Dear, God Let us note that some of us have grown defensive. We rationalize the way we act rather than being honest. As long as we excuse we can’t find help. But help us see our needs and admit thy forgiveness.

AMEN

O Heavenly Father:

We thank thee for food and remember the hungry.

We thank thee for health and remember the sick.

We thank thee for friends and remember the friendless.

We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.

We thank thee and pray that thy gifts to us be used for others.

 

Amen.
