Sunday Morning Reflections ~ A Prayer





On this, the third Sunday in Advent, I want to share an old Hebrew prayer, Numbers 6:24-26, as my thoughts and condolences go to the people of Newtown, who have lost so much. 

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee
The Lord make his face shine upon thee,
 and be gracious unto thee
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, 
and give thee peace

The California Missions series will continue in January

  3. Love your snowy banner! (Give your hubs a thumbs up) Looks chilly though.

    Very nice remembrance, Inger, I hurt when I think of this sort of incident. I have too much empathy, according to my hubs. Little kids in elementary school should not have this trauma. Something is dreadfully wrong when this is so easily done.

  4. Beautiful, Inger. I felt like I was a lonely voice when I posted but feel comforted now that more and more people are speaking out. Our country is being held hostage by the NRA. If the massacre of those innocents doesn't propel politicians into action, I honestly don't know what will.

  6. Beautiful header picture! I cannot get what happened in Newtown out of my mind--it is less that 50 miles from where my son & his family live!!

  7. Va fint! Ny header o snö på den med!!
    Här är det plusgrader nu så snön sjunker ihop men det var jobbigt att gå på jaktmarken idag, den var tung. SKulle till ett pass där det inte var plogat. Men vi fick inget idag.
    Kram!

  8. Inger that was beautiful. Newtown is only about 70 miles from us. It is only about 15 miles from where I grew up. I am having a hard time getting my arms around what happened to those innocent little angels and their teachers!...JP

  12. Very lovely Inger. I've been a slowed down blogger with so much going on here lately in my life. I have a student many hours a week in sewing so my afternoon are all taken up, this is a good thing really. I'm sewing more than ever thanks to her as I sally forth with the next project. Take care. We are 11 degrees on Sunday night here in Homer AK

  16. I came back for a second read, Inger. I've been in a fog since Friday. I think we need a little extra touch of grace just to move through this time. oxo
