At Christmas

I Go Down To The Shore

I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or rolling out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable, what shall–
what shall I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
“Excuse me, I have work to do.

–Mary Oliver

Prayer (mine)

Dear God, may we, by your Grace,
be grateful for the challenges you give us.

May we not complain too much,
else we miss the opportunity to gain compassion
and love for those whose needs are greater than ours.


Because I love this song:

My very best wishes to you and your families this season!
