Welcome to St. Alexander's! St. Alexander's School
Our Gospel reminds us today not to worry so much. How much time in each day do we hand over to our worries? Our heavenly Father cares deeply for us and if He provides for the birds in the air, He will provide for us too. Notice, He does not promise an easy life, though. Don't confuse the lack of an easy life with the Father not providing. What He does say is today's worries are enough for today, guard yourselves against endless worry about things you have no control over.
Next week, as we enter the season of Lent, it’s a good time to begin reflecting on how we can simplify our lives and make them less complicated. Starting with reducing the quantity of worries might be a really good place to start. Perhaps consider turning time of worry into time of prayer; hand it over to God. Prayer tends to bring our spirits back to the present moment with Jesus.
St. Alexander… pray for us
God Bless and Take Care,
