Plain Speaking

“You brood of vipers!”  Clearly John the Baptist was the Howard Stern of preachers in the New Testament.

Today,  Say a prayer of gratitude for all you have – it is plenty and enough. Don Henley, singer and songwriter says in one of his songs, “To want what I have, to take what I’m given, with grace. For this I pray.”

Dear God, open our hearts to a gentle communion with all we meet today and each day.  Help us to love others as you would.  Thank you for all that I have, it is enough and it is plenty.  With a humble, Amen.
