A little late in coming forth with a post today, but couldn’t let the day go by without it. I wish you all peace, joy and happiness in the coming year…And the strength, wherewithal, knowledge, patience and wisdom to guide you through it. Don’t forget to look for and count your blessings along the way. They’re there. Just gotta open our eyes!
I read this poem and loved it so much I had to share. It applies to this next year as well all those lying ahead:
A New Year’s Prayer
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead. – Anonymous
Making any New Years Resolutions????
For my own life I especially like this quote and would love to apply this to my own resolutions:
Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will. – Jonathan Edwards
( Love that!)
Oh, yes, and……
Happy Decorating in 2013!!
