. In the prayer I try and remember the true meaning of Christmas, rather than the material approach of the media. In the quote from Mother Teresa she mentions the light within us and how to keep it burning, and the life it gives.
Jesus, this is a time
when the world says shop
and the advertisements
They encourage us to buy more
to show others we care.
I think you are saying something much different.
I think you are calling us
to prepare for a new
birth within us.
What will it be? I don’t know
I only know you have
something new to show or tell us.
My thoughts get caught up with how to get a gift for everyone. I wonder if I will have time to do all the things I think are necessary. I hear you saying slow down. Be with Me. Open a space in your heart for Me so that I may be with you. Open everything to Me. I already know your weaknesses .You need to know what they are, so that you can feel My loving presence saying it is alright. Let Me show you something new. Let Me be born within you in a way that you may have never dreamed of.
Come Lord Jesus! Let me be open to the new birth you wish to give me.
Come Lord Jesus! Open my eyes to the truth about myself.
Come Lord Jesus! May I share the gifts you have given me with others?
Come Lord Jesus! Jesus is born today! Alleluia!
“Keep the light of Christ always burning in your heart- for He alone is the way to walk. He is the life to give. He is the love to love.”
