Very cold here today, but the sun is shining and the sky is bright blue which makes the fact that it's about 10 degrees tolerable. Spending time this afternoon catching up on some shows that I had DVR'd earlier in the week while Dearest Friend is doing home communion. Just warmed up a cup of Hazelnut coffee and I'm considering a nap....part of me knows I should be doing something but think I will join my TV partner and go for the nap
Teach us to notice those at our gates-those who
live outside the walls of our sometimes small vision.
May we hear the cries of those calling for mercy,
even when their cries are silent and our ears
And when we hear those cries,
fill our shoes with blocks of cement
so we will be inclined to stop.
Fill our hearts with the liquid of compassion
so we will be inclined to help.
Fill our hands with warmth and life
so we will pause to touch
