How to sanitize a Christmas present for your 13-year-old sister.


Yes, those would be the bodies of snowmen glued on top of her Hollister gift card.

Let it be known throughout the North Pole that I am no prude, but seriously?!! Someone please explain to me the purpose of a clothing store advertising with pictures of people not wearing any clothes. (...Actually, please don't.) It may be the current store of choice for all the coolest girls in her class (or so I've been informed), but thanks, I am not giving that to an 8th grader.

After some thought, I decided the snowmen were too boring.


Festive as well as decent. Much better. Feliz navidad!

The lugs aren't dissimilar, and replica watches the bezel is narrow, leaving more dial to gaze at. At 39mm, I feel like it's the perfect size without being too large or too small by today's standards. The Rolex Cellini Time is available in 18k white gold or Everose Gold, and dials and hands are made to match. For example, if you had an 18k white replica watches gold Cellini Time, it would come equipped with either a white or black dial with 18k white gold markers and 18k white gold hands. The alligator strap is finished with a matching 18k white gold buckle. If white gold isn't your style, the rolex replica uk watch is available in an 18k Everose gold case, with 18k pink gold hands and markers, and an 18k Everose buckle on the alligator strap. The Everose version has the option of either a brown of black alligator strap. The dials are available in white or black rolex replica uk lacquer or embellished with a black or a silver-plated classic “Rayon flamm√© de la gloire” guilloche motif, and replica watches both have the applied hour markers, along with printed roman numerals in the four cardinal directions.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.

Amen.
