"A New Year"

I don’t know how you rang in the New Year, but however you greeted 2015 I hope you welcomed it with a prayer. As we journey into this new year, I want to share with you one of my favorite prayers.  Perhaps you will find it speaks to you, as it does to me.

I wish I knew who wrote it, but the author is anonymous, and that leaves room for us to make it our own.

Dear Lord, Please give me
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value, without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come. Amen.

God bless you in this new and wonderful New Year!
