Merry Christmas! 2013

Tonight at the Christmas Eve service at church we sang a song about Mary, the Mother of Jesus. I was struck by the  down-to-earth poignancy of her words, and realized how meaningful they are for us today. I believe that her words in this song should be our words too, all year long ...

Breath of Heaven:

I have traveled many moonless nights,
Cold and weary, with a babe inside.
And I wonder what I've done. Holy Father, You have come
And chosen me now to carry Your Son.

I am waiting in a silent prayer. I am frightened by the load I bear.
In a world as cold as stone, must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now. Be with me now.

Breath of Heaven, hold me together, be forever near me, Breath of Heaven.
Breath of Heaven, lighten my darkness,
Pour over me Your holiness, for You are  holy, Breath of Heaven.

Do You wonder, as You watch my face, if another should have had my place?
But I offer all I am for the mercy of Your plan.
Help me be strong. Help me be. Help me.

Free Excel Organization Directory Workbook

This is a new and improved version from the one I previously made available on this site. I thought it may be useful to someone else with similar need.This directory prints in portrait format  with sixteen entries per page. There are seventeen pages for a total of  272 entries. Each field is easily customized to your specific needs.  Data for each person is entered on one line, which will populate  automatically in the appropriate fields of the print pages. New to this version are the addition of a Cover Page - insert your own logo, images and text, an alphabetical quick-list, an index page, a special detail page, and a page for notes. I made this  in Microsoft Excel 2007. Saved also in Open Document Format for Libre Office.

"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich ..." ~ 2 Corinthians 8:9
