Day 313 | Tuesday, 26 January 2021
I hope you enjoyed going down memory lane with the Church Mouse yesterday.
Last Saturday I shared some prayers for winter. One of the folks who receives these daily writings shared the following with me, so I am passing it along for your reading.
Winter Prayer: “Lord, In the midst of Winter, when the days are cold and wind can pierce..... remind us of the warmth of your love. In the midst of Winter, when days are short, dawn comes late, and dusk arrives early..... remind us that in the darkness your light still shines. In the midst of Winter, when the flowers of spring still lie hidden in the earth, when leaves are off the trees, and the world can seem bleak..... remind us that Easter is but a short time away. And when in our lives we feel as if we are experiencing a season of winter, reach out to us with the power of your resurrection so that we may feel the warmth of your love and see your light that alone can take away the darkness of our soul. Amen”
