The world was only 6 days old When God created man. And yet he knew he’d have to Revise his master plan. For man made a big mistake That messed up the intended peace. And from the Garden of Eden Ma…

The Catholic Church declared 2016 the Jubilee Year of Mercy. To celebrate, the Missionaries of the Precious Blood are posting “Mercy Breaks” to encourage people to show mercy and compassion to people in their lives. I thought it was a neat idea, so I will share them with you as well.
Mercy Break: Send an encouraging text or tweet to a friend facing tough times.
“As Missionaries of the Precious Blood, we feel a special connection with the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Can there be anything more merciful than Jesus shedding his Precious Blood for us? So in honor of the Jubilee Year, we’re offering Mercy Breaks — short and (we hope) doable suggestions for demonstrating the Father’s mercy.”

Hide and seek anyone?
Tired . . .
Tired . . .
Tired . . .
Busy . . .
Busy . . .
Busy . . .
I drop down on my bed
And want to go to sleep
But I do remember
To you I did not speak.
Help me to make time for you –
To pause my busy life
That way you get so much more than
“Love ya, God! Good night!”
I have every good intention
Of spending quite time
With you in the evening
But then I come to find
I’m making progress on this and that
Or, I’ll be five minutes more.
So when I do decide to stop
What you hear are snores.
Help me make the time
In the evening before I sleep
To spend some time with you, O Lord
In prayer and thanksgiving.
*Glory be . . .
* For those of you who don’t know the Glory Be it is as follows:
Glory be to the Father
And to the Son
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning
Is now, and ever shall be
World without end.
