My Morning Gift by Jacki Sellmansberger
I’d like to paraphrase a little something someone shared with me several years ago. It has been on my desk every morning for quite a while, to serve as a reminder of the daily gift each of us receives. I used to tell my children if you woke up this morning, it’s a sign God has a job for you to do.
“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it, or use it for good, but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it! When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain – not loss, good – not evil, success – not failure; in order that I will never forget the price I have paid for it.”
Please remember our custodian, Cary Pedraza. Her mother had a stroke a couple of weeks ago and is in St. Joseph’s. She will probably be there 2 more weeks. It is a strain financially, I am sure, for her to drive into town every day after work to care for her mother. Sunshine is sending her a small gift card. Keyla Espinal’s, (registrar) grandmother passed away in the Dominican Republic this week. Lani Valentine (3rd) is in California with an emergency family illness. Please keep these families in your prayers. Pray for many of the staff who are struggling physically to stay healthy (Julie Spence, for one), as we are going into conferences next week. Continue to remember the Patterson family and all those affected by this loss, Jocelyn Garrison, Mr. Tom, and Cynthia Saffo. Welcome back to Laura Sciacca!
