Since I have the opportunity to provide devotions in the church my family attends I am always collecting spiritual tidbits I find to be used later. Several years ago I received a wonderful message from Anna Neal Blanchard who was then the Chair of our Board of Directors.  She has continued her service to RSS and currently is a member of our Board. I make it a point to read the message she sent to me each year at this time.
We are all just settling back into our normal routines at home and work after Christmas and New Year's activities kept us busy. Perhaps you traveled to be with family or friends but even if you stayed at home you were probably very busy and caught up in the rush that goes along with the holidays.
I offer it to you as a blessing for the coming year with hopes that your spirit will be strengthened for the work ahead.
The Real Work of Christmas Begins...
When the song of the angel is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the Kings and Princes are home,
When the Shepherds are back with their flocks
The real work of Christmas begins.
To find the lost
To heal the broken
To feed the hungry
To release the prisoners
To rebuild the nations
To bring peace among brothers
To make music in the heart.
