Dear Sisters in the League,
As we prepare to welcome Jesus, let us continue our journey in faith and love.
Reflecting on the past year, I offer my sincere appreciation not only for the many friendships, but also for your dedication and service to others. Take time to experience God’s love and grace. See the face of Jesus in all you meet this Christmas. Are our attitudes. lifestyles and actions consistent with that of the gospel that we believe in? Do we end each day grateful in prayer and mindful of the many blessings given to us?
As our theme this year is on homelessness and their needs, I would like to suggest over the holiday season that you give just a bit more than you normally would: such as one more dollar, one more pair of socks, one more box of macaroni and cheese, and maybe one more jar of peanut butter.
The cold and winter season is especially hard on the homeless. A warm cup of coffee and nice warm meal will go a long way in making their day. Not everyone is as fortunate as us.
I look forward to working with you in the New Year to come. My best wishes for a Christmas filled with hearts of love and joy and a new year filled with peace and happiness for you and your family.
