I know I will get busy later, as I am carrying out Verger Services for a Wedding (not planning this one)at the Church where I worship, visiting family where one of the children is celebrating his 5th birthday and then back to my Church to ring in the New Year with my Church Family.
So I am posting this early, as I don't want to be late with wishing you all the best for 2011.
A New Year Prayer: author unknown
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.
