Advent: An Attitude of Gratitude

As we begin our new liturgical year with this First Sunday of Advent, many of us marvel at how the pace of time seems to quicken and accelerate between Advent and Christmas.. BUT … you may fairly ask … how might I cope more easily with all I have on my plate?  Well, don’t throw away this week’s bulletin!  Cut out this modern version of Psalm 23 and affix it to your refrigerator door with a magnet or scotch tape.  Every time you open the refrigerator door, may it be a reminder to take a deep breath and be grateful for the gift of the Messiah!

 

I SHALL NOT RUSH

The Lord is my pacesetter … I shall not rush.
He makes me stop for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images of stillness which restore my serenity.
He leads me in the way of efficiency through calmness of mind 
and his guidance in peace.
Even though I have a great many things to accomplish each day,
I will not fret for his presence is here.
His timeliness, his all importance will keep me in balance.
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activity
by anointing my mind with his oils of tranquility.
My cup of joyous energy overflows.
Truly harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours 
for I shall walk in the peace of my Lord and dwell in his house forever.
AMEN!
