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.

Happy New Year!
"And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
Give me a light that I might tread safely into the unknown.
And he replied:
Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you
better than light, and
safer than a known way"
Minnie L. Haskins
