Thank you to all who contributed to make Christmas merrier for these women and children.

As the Christmas season officially comes to a close on Sunday, January 12th with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, we offer the following by Howard Thurman

“When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.”

Epiphany Blessings,
Kathy Sylvester and Maryanne Miloscia
