Hello friends, the blog is back and comments are working and…this has been such a mess, and so stressful. What a terrible time of the year to have a “broken” blog. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas celebration. We certainly did. My mother is still staying with us. She arrived in October for our oldest granddaughter’s wedding. We are trying to navigate her new normal living with dementia and alzheimers. She also has severe hearing loss, so there’s a lot of yelling (smile). We’ll be getting her some hearing aids ( smile). We are so blessed to have her with us, every moment is precious.
We didn’t have a snowy Christmas but there was snow, and it was surely a cold Christmas. We have snow and slush and yucky stuff. But some states are experiencing horrible snow storms. I send prayers for your safety.
On the subject of prayers. I wanted to do something special for Christmas brunch with our family this year. We celebrate Christmas on Christmas eve, so everyone can be in their own homes for Christmas Day. It makes it a lot easier on our daughter and her family. They have brunch with us and dinner with her husbands family. So, I wrote a simple prayer and I gave a copy to each person, and asked them to read it with me, out loud and all together. It was a bummer, everyone seemed a bit awkward as we all recited it. I liked it though. They all thought only one person should say grace or prayers, etc. for future Christmas brunch celebrations. What can I say, I thought it would be memorable, and maybe even become a new tradition. Well it certainly will be memorable. (smile)
This is the prayer,
Lord, we gather here today with our loved ones to rejoice in the world’s greatest gift. We ask You to bless each and every one of us present and distant. We thank You for the means to provide a meal to nourish our bodies and the forgiveness to nourish our soul and redeem our sins. We ask You to help us to stay close to You and each other, please let today be filled with love and laughter as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
I would love to know your thoughts. Saying grace/blessing at meal time or holidays
