O Thou whose glory fills the heavens,
Whose bounty clothes the earth,
To Thee a poem of thanks we raise
For blessings from our birth.
For that untiring love Thou dost,
From day to day renew,
O may it on our hearts descend
Like heaven-distilled dew.
For mercy great, unending still,
Which gave up to the grave
Thine only Son, the Sinless One,
Our sinful souls to save.
While entering on another year
Our cares on Thee we cast,
Beseeching aid in days to come
Which cheered us through the past.
That still the freedom may be ours
To kneel down in Thy sight,
And worship Thee at shut of day,
And in the morning light.
That from temptation’s fatal paths
Thou turn our steps away;
And keep us from unholy thoughts
That lead the mind astray.
No more may lust of worldly wealth
Command thoughts that are thine;
Nor may we envy other’s lot,
Or at our own repine.
Than all the riches earth can boast
Or gems beneath the sea,
We know the pious, humble heart,
More precious is to Thee.
How needful, then, to train our thoughts,
And fan the heavenly flame
Of faith, in the believing heart,
Triumphing o’er sin and shame
And holding by the Word, thou hast
For grace and guidance given,
Pass trough this world in holy fear,
True candidates for heaven.

Dear Lord,

please give me…
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come.

Amen.

Always choose to heal, not to hurt;

to forgive, not to despise;

to persevere, not to quit;

to smile, not to frown and to love, not to hate.

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we

bought but what we built;

not what we got but what we shared;

not our competence but our character,

and not our success but our significance …

Live a life that matters. Live a life that cares …

A ray of hope flitters in the sky

A tiny star lights up way up high

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas

The winds have changed whisper in the trees

And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn

This comes to pass when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around

You’ve got the feel you’re on solid ground

For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn

This comes to pass when a child is born

And all of this happened

Because the world is waiting

Waiting for one child

Black, white, yellow, no one knows

But a child that would grow up and turn tears to

laughter

Hate to love, war to peace

And everyone to everyone’s neighbour

Misery and suffering would be forgotten forever

It’s all a dream and illusion now

It must come true, sometimes soon somehow

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

All across the land dawns a brand new morn

This comes to pass when a child is born

When a child is born

Dear God of Compassion,

There is such a hole in our hearts.  Today should be a day of joy, but we feel emptiness and loss.

While the world celebrates around , I remember Christmas celebrations of the past and people long to have we loved We bring our sorrows to You, Lord, like some odd gift of the magi and dump them at Your feet. In our blind tears we wonder if anyone can possibly understand the depth of our sadness.

 

We know, You can. You sent Your son to be with us in our deepest sorrows and we know that even though we might not feel it now, You are here with us, grieving with us, caring for us in our sadness.

Dearest Lord, help us to turn to the one we miss so much today and speak. Help us heal the loss of our parting and help us not to regret the things we didn’t say. Sorrow tears at our hearts, but today we ask that our  loss soften our hearts and make us more compassionate with everyone we meet, so that our loss may become a gift to others.

Amen.

Holy Creator of Trees,
bless with your abundant grace
this our Christmas tree as a symbol of joy.
May its evergreen branches be a sign
of your never-fading promises.
May its colorful lights and ornaments call us
to decorate with love our home and our world.
May the gifts that surround this tree
be symbols of the gifts we have received
from the Tree of Christ’s Cross.
Holy Christmas tree within our home,
may Joy and Peace come and nest
in your branches and in our hearts.

Amen.
