    Sister Dawn! I love that you did a Christmas video message.
    I absolutely love the comparison tween our log cabin and the manger.
    May our Provident God hold you dear as you lead us into
    the the coming year.
    Merry Christmas!

    Sister Dawn, your message of hope and optimism rings true and fills my heart! I have been reflecting about what would have happened if the innkeeper had found a corner in the inn where Mary and Joseph might find room. What noise and confusion would they encounter with all the other raucous travelers? In the stable, though the conditions were not ideal, they found quiet and peace. This Advent I am trying to find the quiet and peaceful place to encounter the Christmas miracle…not a place just to “fit it in.” Yes, it is a different year, but Providence has provided for us. Merry Christmas to you and to all the Sisters of Providence!

    A beautiful tribute to the Advent and Christmas season. A big 👏 for the replica of the original log cabin where Mother Theadore settled her mission of spreading the gospel and EDUCATION!

    Very, very prayer-filled and that Advent leaning feeling….
    Well done, Dawn. Do more videos with SMW backgrounds.
