Holiday Cheer

 20171209_180916

In this world of hatred and pain, it is so good to see the beauty

of colorful lights, good will, and holiday cheer,

and I can see on the horizon

hope being born,

very soon.

Merry Christmas everyone! And Happy Chanukah!

(Yes, I know the calendar’s not there yet.)

A Prayer for the Oppressed

20171028_150404.jpg

During this thanksgiving season Lord God, we lift up

to you all those oppressed in our world,

the victims of war, refugees,

all those who mourn, grieving

deeply in their spirits,

those with little or no food

to eat, those that are sick

and lacking medical care,

please work in these areas,

in physical and in tangible ways,

as in the days of old.

Pull us through the darkness,

and out into the light.

Help us Lord God to be lights too

of encouragement,

with whatever hope we can offer.

We know You can do this

Lord God, and so we humbly ask.

Amen.

A Personal Invitation

100_1046

If you like this blog, and would like to see more of my work, in a faith based environment, this is your personal invitation to my other blogsite, Walking Through Psalms.

There you will find more of who I am, with Scripture quotes, commentary, and usually a prayer at the end. Sometimes I place a poem there, with a focus on faith in God.

I want to make it clear that all are welcome to both of my sites. I try to encourage all people, not only one particular faith. I spend a lot of time in the Old Testament, including the Psalms, which are so loved by many.

So please feel free to stop by. Tell them Nico sent you. You can find it here: www.walkingthroughpsalms.wordpress.com

I wish you peace.
