never, not even once…

#BLOTUS is speaking at the United Nations. That in itself is frightening. Even more frightening is the clear and present danger of a third world war that begins with two morons having a pissing contest.

just fix it

Fix it.:

Worry fixes nothing wrote Hemingway. Do you agree? I do.

Worry is nothing but another form of fear. And although a little fear isn’t necessarily a bad thing, we can never let if immobilize us. “Action is eloquence,” wrote Shakespeare, and again, experience has taught me that taking action cuts through any fear or worry.

When we see something that is wrong there’s no need to worry or fret about it. Let’s just fix it.

a prayer for hungry mothers

Gracious God and glorious Creator, as we celebrate Mother’s Day and give thanks for the love and care provided by our mothers, we recognize that your love and your care sustains all of us, and even this planet we call home. We give you thanks for your presence in our lives and we thank you for all we have received from our mothers.

Yet, Lord, we know that even as we honor our mothers, there are millions of mothers who are not so blessed. Help us remember those mothers around the world this morning who face hardships and dangers we cannot begin to imagine. Be with mothers everywhere to lighten their burdens, provide relief from their worries and grant them rest from their unceasing labor.

We pray especially for all those impoverished mothers around the world who are stalked by the shadow of hunger of hunger, those mothers who live in constant fear of famine and must fight every day just to provide enough nourishment to keep their children alive. The love those mothers feel for their children is no less than the love our mothers had and have for us.

Be with hungry mothers and hungry children everywhere this morning. Help us honor them as we honor our own mothers. Let them feel your love, and let them be fed.  Amen.
