Happy New Year!!!

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.
May you be blessed by a warm fire and the warmth of friends...

...and surrounded by beauty to inspire you...

...and may your time to tat and to create whatever beauty inspires you also be plentiful.

I hope the kindness
you've given to others (including myself)
returns many times to you.

May hope, love, and warmth
be in your heart's possessing,
and may the New Year
bring you and yours
many blessings.

Happy New Year to each of you...
