St Nicholas Eve

St Nicholas day again ❤️

Please keep praying friends.  I have a lot of support but am also going through some very difficult times. My heart is broken because of some things I see that I can do very little about because it is someone else's story and I am privileged just to see it.

This song about St Nicholas is very special to me. 

O who loves Nicholas the saintly,
O who serves Nicholas the saintly,
Him will Nicholas receive,
And give help in time of need:
Holy Father Nicholas!*
He who dwells in God's holy mansions,
Is our help on the land and oceans,

He will guard us from all ills,
Keep us pure and free from sins
Holy Father Nicholas!*
Holy Saint, hearken to our prayer,
Let not life drive us to despair,

All our efforts shall not wane,
Singing praises to your name:
Holy Father Nicholas!*


This line:

"Let not life drive us to despair"

My former spiritual father emailed me when I had lost my memory and I remembered the song. 

And now, all I can do is thank God through my tears.
