PRAYING WITH LIFE’S TRANSITIONS

Life is full of changes. Transitions come, welcomed or not. They come into our lives; and into the lives of those we care for and serve. Some transitions shake the core of our very being. Some come as exciting challenges. Both can be blessings. Come, reflect and pray with the God who created us all and journeys with us in every transition.
