Today is my birthday, and I’m spending it with my mother at her farm in Chambersville, Texas. Last night my two brothers and my daughter gathered with us for a great birthday feast which included my brother Austin’s fabulous pasta and home made bread and of course my mother’s chocolate pie. It was a lovely evening.
One of my morning devotions today included a prayer from Amma Mary of Egypt, one of the desert mothers:
“Now therefore, lead me wherever you please; lead me to salvation, teach me what is true, and go before me in the desert.”
A great prayer to begin another year.
