After I walked through the entire building checking on the heating system, I paused for a moment in the chapel. I was the only person on the entire campus and I had this moment to stop in and visit Jesus. What a quiet and wonderful blessing this brief visit turned out to be.
It is my intention to pray each day for all of the students, teachers, staff, parents, grandparents, and all of the benefactors who make our school possible. The legacy we are leaving is powerful, and I want to be sure we are wrapping it in prayer constantly.
Finally, I did not get a blog posted for World Day of the Sick on February 11. This day of prayer on the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes is one of my favorites. The sick hold a place very near and dear to my heart, because I know what it is to suffer through serious illness. I know the strength and perseverance required while going through it. The power of intercessory prayer helped me get through it many years ago. I now strive to do the same for others what was done for me. If you are suffering, please know that I prayed for you in a very special way the day before yesterday. I just did not write about it at the time.
My dear readers, keep the faith. Keep praying. Jesus will move powerfully in your midst. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the power of the holy Spirit be with you always!
