Yesterday my daughters and husband and I went
into Chicago with the youth group from our parish
to work in the soup kitchen of the
Sisters of Charity.
These are Mother Teresa's nuns,
and the kitchen was opened
by Mother Teresa herself.
(That's my hubby up there on the right.)
I can't tell you what this experience has done for me,
to take me away from the cares and silly concerns of my everyday life,
and help those who are truly in need.
(Thats one of my daughters cheesing on the left.)
It really put things into perspective and I had the anticipation
of the coming of my Lord Jesus on my mind all day.
I felt so close to Him while I was there,
and so thankful for everything He has done in my life
and the wonderful people He has given me to love!
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!
I hope you feel the joy of Him in your heart always!
God Bless You
