The Christmas Card List

There is a list of folks I know
All written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look,
And that is when I realize
Those names are all a part
Not of the book they’re written in,
But deep inside my heart.

For each name stands for someone
Who has touched my life sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become
A special friend of mine.
I really feel that I’m composed
Of each remembered name,
And why my life is so much better
Than it was before they came.

Once you’ve know that “someone”,
All the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word
Or of a friendly face.
So never think my Christmas cards
Are just a mere routine
Of names upon a list that are
Forgotten in between

For when I send a Christmas card
That is addressed to you,
It is because you’re on that list
Of folks I’m indebted to.
And whether, I have known you
For many years or few,
The greatest gift that God can give
Is having friends like you!

A NEW YEAR PRAYER
God grant us this year a wider view, so we see others’ faults through the eyes of You.
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue, neither the adult … nor the young.

Give us patience and grace to endure and a stronger faith so we feel secure.
Instead of remembering, help us forget the irritations that caused us to fret.
 
Freely forgiving for some offence and finding each day a rich recompense.
In offering a friendly, helping hand and trying in all ways to understand;

That all of us whoever we are …are trying to reach an unreachable star.
For the great and small … the good and bad, the young and old … the sad and glad
 
Are asking today; is life worth living? The answer is only in, loving and giving.
For only Love can make man kind and Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind.

By giving love, we can help this year to lift the clouds of hate and fear.
May Your New Year Be Blessed
Happy New Year

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary light is requested to burn this week Dec.29 –Jan. 5 by Vera Hubick in memory of her husband Peter Hubick.
ALTAR CANDLES: The monthly candles that will burn at all services during the requested month is available. The donation is $40. The chart is in the vestibure for your intentions.

ENVELOPES: If you could possibly distribute envelopes to anyone you know, please help in this matter. Sometimes the parishioner is unable to attend Divine Liturgy but would like to have their envelopes. Any one in your neighborhood or family, try to make sure they get their envelopes. Thank You…

THANKS: Through the year, many of the parishioners have volunteered for various projects. The services that you so willingly provide is greatly appreciated – whether it be the cleaning of the Church, snow removal on the sidewalks, being there for funerals to open and arrange the necessary bells etc., the baking of the Holy communion & Myrovania breads, working at our fund-raising projects, choir singing and any other service that is connected to the Church duties. Your volunteer hours keep us in good running – Keep up the good work with God’s Blessings. We cannot forget to also thank the few non-parishioners who come in to help. Thanks to all for all you do. May God grant you a wonderful year 2019.

PRAYERS: Please remember in your prayers all those who are in Nursing Facilities, sick at home and all who are unable to attend the Divine Liturgy. Also we pray that our parish may grow and we have more people. Christmas Eve and Christmas day was very sparse and we have such a beautiful Church. Where is everyone???
