Quote: Start by doing what’s necessary, then what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. (St.Francis of Assis)
Excerpt from Our Daily Bread
Time to Pray? One morning, when I was a young child, I was sitting in the kitchen, watching my mother prepare breakfast. Unexpectedly, the grease in the skillet in which she was frying bacon caught fire. Flames shot into the air and my mother ran into the pantry for a bag of a flour to throw on the blaze.
“Help!” I shouted. And then I added, “Oh, I wish it was time to pray!” “It’s time to pray” must have bee a frequent household expression, and i took it quite literally to mean we could pray only at certain times.
The time to pray, of course, is any time- especially when we’re in crisis. Fear, worry, anxiety, and care are the most common occasions for prayer. It is when we are desolate, forsaken, and stripped of every human resource that we naturally, and stripped of every human resource that we naturally resort to prayer. We cry out with the words of David, “Help me, O Lord!”(Ps.70:1)
May this be our simple prayer in every crisis and all day long: “Help Lord!”-David Roper
There is no place or time we cannot pay.
Here are some crafts we did with the kids last week.
Snails may be slow but this craft is super fast and is a great way to recycle old CDs.
