Dear Lord, we are so thankful for the many ways you have blessed us with abundance in our lives. Please bless this food and those families around the world who will not have enough to eat today. In gratitude we remember your humble birth in a lowly stable, and pray for those who have no shelter. Lord, help us to be mindful always of your message of love, peace, and sacrifice for others. Even though Advent is over, please keep your loving Spirit alive in our hearts.  In His precious name we pray, Amen.

Take some time to sing some songs together, over the piano or guitar, or during clean up.      Read a story together or to the children.

Thank you for joining us on this year’s Advent journey.

May He bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you…go in Peace.
