To all of the beautiful Creative Girls out there:
You feel the Lord’s beauty this season shine upon you
Feel the love your family gives you daily
Encourage you to pray daily and thank God for your life and family
Love your sisters and brothers because we are all God’s children
that you feel sparkly and bright when you create something from your heart
I hope that you share your gifts with the world and share God’s love with your friends and neighbors
Finally I pray that you all have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
Happy Holidays from my family to all the Creative Girls out there!
(I encourage the children to read this aloud at the table, because some of us need a little help with prayer: like ME!)
God of all gifts, we thank you for the many ways you have blessed us this day. We are grateful each of those who are gathered around this table. We ask you to bless us and our food and to bless those we love who are not with us today. In our gratitude and love, we remember your humble birth into our lives and pray for those who are without enough to eat. We remember the stable in which you were born and pray for those who have no place to live. We remember your challenging message of caring and giving and we pray for peace in families and nations throughout the world. We bless you and give you thanks in your Spirit who brings our hearts to life on Christmas Day and forever. Amen
