Happy New Year

Dear Lord I pray,
Grant me the strength from day to day
To bear what burdens come my way.
Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear.
Help me live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.
                    Let me not bitterly complain
       When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
             Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
              Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
              Lord, as the days shall come and go
                 In courage let me stronger grow.
Lord, as the New Year dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
 Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
 Keep me from selfishness and spite;
 Let me be wise in what is right.
  In this New Year grant that I
  May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
Edgar A. Guest
Until Next Time
Wishing you and your family the timeless treasures of Christ,
the warmth of home,
 the love of family,
and the company of good friends.
 Wishing you a blessed and a happy New Year.
