S: Manuel 2nd Year
2: Dear Lord, Lead us daily to the well of grace. Lead us to nurture and instruct our children. Lead us to listen and consider the thoughts and emotions of our children before we speak. Guide us so that we might guide them in the midst of the decisions and storms they will face. Supply us with wisdom to prepare them to live as agents of grace, redemption and mercy in a fallen and broken world. Lead us into a greater love for Your word and truth, and into a greater hunger for You, so that our children might grow up in our home where your presence is known, learning by example what it means to seek you with all of their hearts. Lead us to the wisdom and sensitivity we need to be nurturing stewards of the gifts You have placed in our children. Let us see beyond the paths of our own life, so that we will be open to the unique purposes and plans you have for them.
3: Lead us to diligence, discipline, and creativity in our work, so that, through the labor of our minds and hands your provision for the physical needs of our family would flow. And in seasons of sickness or unemployment, give us yet an unwavering faith in You as this family's Provider and Protector. Above all, lead us to the cross, the place where we might receive the grace required to humbly model for our family what it means to follow in the footsteps of Christ, loving and serving them as Christ loves and serves His church. We bow our head before you in recognition of our utter dependence. Leading this family requires more wisdom, selflessness and strength than we possess. But as you lead us, we know that You will show us the way to lead our family. Amen Mommy & Daddy

83: Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping on your nose, Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, And folks dressed up like Eskimos. Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe, Help to make the season bright. Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, Will find it hard to sleep tonight. They know that Santa's on his way; He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. And every mother's child is going to spy, To see if reindeer really know how to fly. And so I'm offering this simple phrase, To kids from one to ninety-two, Although its been said many times, many ways, A very Merry Christmas to you
