The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

-from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

I hope it ministers to you also.

The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

Show Me Your Ways
Song by Hillsong Live

Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways
Show me Your ways
That I may walk with You
Show me Your ways
I put my hope in You
The cry of my heart
Is to love You more
To live with the
Touch of Your hand
Stronger each day
Show me Your ways

If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

Have a blessed week.

And here's for your status--from Psalms for Praying:

"[God is] enfolding me with strength and steadfast love." Let yourself be held together by God's love for you.

BOY! ARE WE EVER IN THE SAME BOAT. I HAVE BOTH RHEUMATOID AND PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS AS WELL AS ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS. THE PAIN IS CONSTANT AND I LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT. BUT WHEN THE BAD FLARE-UPS COME, THAT'S WHEN I GO FOR THE SHOTS BUT I CAN ONLY GET THEM EVERY THREE MONTHS. I ALSO CAN'T TAKE ANY OF THE ORAL MEDS FOR ARTHRITIS DUE TO FAILING KIDNEYS. WHAT A PAIR WE ARE!
