I am reprinting my post, Mercy, from April 25, 2021. The child we sponsor in Mexico is now 5 years old. Compassion sent us a form to write a Christmas greeting, for the child and his parents, and they will translate for us. We also correspond through email, courtesy of Compassion International. It is easy to stay in touch and offer encouragement. We are blessed.

Peace be within thy walls,
and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the LORD our God,

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older
