Weekly Reflection - November 27, 2022
Sister Rose Ashour
Rejoice, be glad
Only twenty days more
It's good to wait
It helps our impatience
If we let it.
we clean the house
we dust the walls
and clean the floor
for Christmas company.
We mustn't forget

We empty it first
God fills it
with gifts for
His love, his joy,
Rejoice, be glad
He's already there
