A Prayer for December:

As we enter this season of festivities and merriment we wish to remember those who are poor and struggling, feeling alone and lonely, or grieving the loss of loved ones.

“May  Peace and warmth, food, kindnesses, love, and comfort be brought to those who grieve, are alone and lonely, grieving and suffering loss of loved ones. This is my prayer, this is my hope. I let it be. Amen.” ~ Lady Dawnecia Palmer
