Gracious God, in this week of preparation,
I am reminded of the dresses
my mother-in-law sewed and sent in the mail
each year for our Easter.
The package also included
underclothes, socks, and purses.
What wonderful gifts of love,
not only for the children,
but also for the busy mother.
Your sacrificial love
has come down to us
in many ways.
Open our eyes this week
to ways we can pass it on.  Amen.

Luke 3:4c
“Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”

Luke 6:31
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
