An excerpt from Psalm 90:12
Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”
Reflection from Val Evans, St Gregory’s Episcopal Church:
Time never stops it keeps ticking away, maybe we would be wise to ask for God’s help to focus on what is most important.
I sometimes find myself worrying about the future, but dwelling on our problems and worries can be a burden, in the same way mourning over the past, when we were younger and fitter can be depressing, is this what God wants for us, I don’t think so. Would we be wiser to live more in the present and concentrate on what God wants us to do today. Should we have more faith that God’s helpwill come when we need it. Life is short let’s make the most of it and concentrate on what God’s plan might be for us today?

“Death Came a-Knockin”
by Ruthie Foster arr. Paul Rardin
I’m gonna stoop right down,
buckle up my shoes,
and I’ll move on down to the Jordan stream.
