For those of us who feel a bit bruised from a thoughtless word or a careless gesture, may You soften the blow by supplying a soft landing place that is lined with your grace.
May we feel the glory and awe-filling wonder of your presence in our lives. May this presence lessen the blow of life’s harshness.
As we move into this week with all of its demands and deadlines, bring to our minds the important aspects of this week: a small child brought into this world to save us, time to spend with our family– with our family, not for our family.
May we be able to slow down enough to breathe, enjoy.
May you give us the same gift that you gave Mary all those years ago that we may store all of our experiences and feelings into our heart and ponder on them for years to come.
May we take this week to praise and honour you in all that we think, do and say.
In Jesus precious name we pray,
