Always By Our Side

Dear Friends, This year sees a transition into a new decade of age for me. It is exciting and a bit intimidating. I know that many of you have experienced such thoughts as well as you have gone from one decade to another. Each decade is unique, is it not? Life is so interesting, challenging and blessed by our loving Father, our Savior Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Let us give thanks and praise to God and may we continue as disciples walking together in faith, hope and love. You are all in my prayers, please keep me in yours.

In our Gospel this weekend, Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.
