whether I leave behind a year of joy or of sorrow and disappointments.
I pause to give thanks. Thank You for being with me everyday of every year. Thank you for making all things new and for giving me the grace of fresh starts & beautiful new beginnings.
Remind me of your presence in the days to come. Especially when I’m distressed, pained, confused or anxious.
I pray for the gift of the Holy Spirit and call upon Jesus, Your Son, our Lord, for His intercession, His guidance and light to shine our path, this new year and always.
Today is one of the most exhausting days of my life. All I do, I offer them to God. He gives me strength to fulfill my duties, my obligations.
I’m sharing this beautiful prayer before sleep.
Prayer before sleep.
Dear God, as I lay me down to sleep, relax the tension of my body.
Calm the restlessness of my mind; still the thoughts which worry and perplex me.
Help me to rest myself and all my problems in your strong & loving arms.
Let your Spirit speak to my mind and heart while I’m asleep, so that when I wake in the morning, I may find that I have received in the nighttime, light for my way, strength for my tasks, peace for my worries, forgiveness for my sins.
Grant me sleep tonight and tomorrow power to live.
This is True Love.
Stories, tales and legends depict love in glorious ways but NO love is greater than this. None will ever be.
I believe Holy Week is Jesus dying in the cross and redeeming us. The cross which is a symbol of that ultimate Love.
We are loved, perfectly loved by someone who died for us…
And I wish to commemorate it not just today but everyday. I’m not posting this to preach, I’m no saint. But I’m hoping to remind everyone of this True Love.
and by His wounds we are healed
Blessed Holy Week to all.
