This is a time for waiting. Samuel’s mother Hannah, who
was considered barren, waited and prayed that she could
bear a child. In our time of waiting for this Christmas are
we using our time of waiting as time for prayer? Today if
we are waiting in line in a store or waiting in our kitchen for
our favorite dish to be done, it would be a great time to say a
prayer for those less fortunate than we are. What about all the
families that have lost their loved ones during this pandemic
and children struggling with e-learning?
Let us glorify the Lord and rejoice in God our Savior,
for God has done a great thing for Hannah and many
great things for us.
