A New Year's Prayer

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.

A Blessed and Holy 2011 to you and your families.

Thank you Michael and the same to yours. Isn't it so true that as we age and grow in wisdom, our needs, our desires get more simple? There is a beauty in that
