“If you can’t fly then run,
If you can’t run then walk,
If you can’t walk then crawl,
But whatever you do
you have to keep moving”



St. Bridget’s Blessing
May Bridget bless the house wherein you dwell
Bless every fireside every wall and door
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy
Bless every foot that walks its portals through
May Bridget bless the house that shelters you.

Live the Word
A New Year is always a great opportunity to make a fresh start. Perhaps there is something in your life yourself you wish to change or let go of. Ask
yourself “what are the steps I need to make to create this”? Change allows for great personal growth which will be reflected in your life or within.

Thought for the Week

All of your days have already been
written in God’s book. When you go
through a disappointment, don’t stop
on that page. Stay the course.
Keep believing. You may be tired,
discouraged and frustrated, but don’t
give up on your future. Our God is
faithful.
(Anon.)

Live the Word
A New Year is always a great opportunity to make a fresh start. Perhaps there is something in your life yourself you wish to change or let go of. Ask
yourself “what are the steps I need to make to create this”? Change allows for great personal growth which will be reflected in your life or within.

Thought for the Week:

 

Take a leap of faith and begin this wonderful New Year by believing.
Believe in yourself and believe that there is a loving Source - a Sower of Dreams -
just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.
Sarah Ban Breathnach.
