A Christmas Blessing

DSC04530Instead of my usual articles this week, I wanted to share with you a prayer that I wrote a couple of years ago – it is my prayer for all of you!

As Joseph anxiously awaited Christ’s birth, may you be filled with excited anticipation.
As the donkey carrying Mary to Bethlehem, may you bear your load without complaint or care.
As the stable that served as their shelter, may you make your homes a welcome respite for all.
As the star that shone over the manger, may you light the way to Christ for others.
As the angels in the sky, may you rejoice in his holy birth.
As the shepherds in the field, may you greet our savior with awe and wonder.
As the manger filled with hay, may you hold the Christ child high in your families.
As the kings who followed the star to the baby, may you follow Christ each day.
And as Mary, may you treasure each day in your hearts, knowing of Christ’s sacrifice for each of us that started with the birth of an innocent baby.

Merry Christmas!
