8.2.23: Unite with Christ

Tonight I’m posting an extra blog, because I have decided to start publishing regularly between 9pm and 11pm each day.

Staying up to publish just after 12am is too tiring for me now, whilst the pressure to post in the mornings can be a stressful distraction during my quiet prayer-time.

Tomorrow evening I will continue to explore the meaning and usefulness of dreams, God willing, but for now, here is tonight’s bonus blog:

You are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).

Unite with Christ, our Lord,
In prayer.
Unite with him
In deep despair.

Unite with Christ,
And let him reign
Within your heart –
He knows your pain.

Unite with Christ, our Lord,
In love.
Unite with him
In bad and good.

Unite with Christ,
Who knows your fear
And grief,
For he is always near.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

The Rosary Hospital 

Earlier this week, someone asked for a “pretty” rosary. I felt I understood what she meant, though I knew how limited my available materials are. So yesterday evening I enjoyed making her rosary, using a combination of wooden African beads and a few, matching ceramic ones for the “Our Fathers”. This rosary has a fairly heavy cross, which balances the extra weight of the ceramic beads. It’s hard to judge exactly how it will look when it’s finished, but I do hope it will qualify as “pretty” in its new owner’s eyes!
