Michaelmas is Here



It is God's eye that sees me.
It is God's mouth that calls me.
It is God's feet that lead me.
It is God's arm protecting me.
It is God's thoughts enlightening me.
It is God's courage strengthening me.
It is God's heart that loves me.
Conqueror of the dragon, Michael
Lead us to the Bringer of Peace.

Lovely. I wish we had celebrated Michaelmas this year-I'll have to put it on my calendar for next year.

That is wonderful - I am copying the poem - so beautiful. Thank you for the reminder to celebrate that festival.
