for the week of Sept 14, 2015
O Great Mystery of Life we bow in gratitude, simply gratitude, as we begin this week. When we pause to consider the freedoms living in our nation affords, we are grateful. When we stop to appreciate our families and loving friends we are grateful. For when life becomes overwhelming and we do not have to journey alone; we are grateful. As we begin a new week of opportunity here at Volunteers of America, instead of worrying, we choose to worship by committing this day and week to Your love and care. We simply pause, lifting our voices, thoughts and hearts in gratitude for this day. May we live it well centered in Your divine grace.
