A Prayer for the New Year ...

"A Prayer for the New Year"
- Anonymous

A new year is unfolding ... like a blossom with petals
curled tightly concealing the beauty within.

Lord, let this year be filled with the things that are
truly good ... with the comfort of warmth in our relationships,
with the strength to help those who need our help,
and the humility and openness to accept help from others.

As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us go
forward with great hope that all things can be possible ...
with Your help and Your guidance. - Amen.

With my sincere wishes for a New Year filled
with Love, Laughter, and Happiness Ever After.

That's really a nice prayer.... which we all need to "deliver us from evil" in these troubling times. I offer the same best wishes back to you and your family as we enter the new year.

BTW, very cool fireworks wallpaper!
