Today will be rather simple but if you play your cards right, rather profound. Every year at advent Fr. Siefert gives the people of St. Mary Magdalen an early Christmas present. It’s called the Little Blue Book and offers simple reflections everyday for the season of Advent through Christmas. At the end of each reflection is the phrase…spend some quiet time with the Lord.
Do something great for our Lord today – spent some quiet time with Him. 10 minutes, 15 minutes – whatever time you can carve into your schedule. Just sit there and let him guide your thoughts. It will not be time wasted. Trust me. Strike that – TRUST HIM. And one last thing – tomorrow is the feast of St. Nicholas – don’t forget to put your shoe out!
God’s will, not mine, be done.
Be not afraid; just have faith.
Jesus, I trust in You.
He must increase; I must decrease.
