Dear Christ Church Friends,
Giving thanks to God is our daily work. Sometimes it is easy to be grateful, and sometimes it is very hard. As always, Mary Oliver says it best.
The Gift by Mary Oliver
Be still, my soul, and steadfast.
Earth and heaven both are still watching
though time is draining from the clock
and your walk, that was confident and quick,
has become slow,
So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience, let God and the world
know you are grateful.
That the gift has been given.
The gift has been given. Alleluia!
Blessings and love,
