The sun is just rising on the morning of another day, the first day of a NEW YEAR!
What can I wish that this day…this year may bring to me?
A few friends who understand me, and yet remain my friends.
A work to do which has value.
An unafraid mind.
An understanding heart.
A sight of the eternal hills, something beautiful the hand of man has made.
A sense of humor and the power to laugh.
A little leisure with nothing to do.
A few moments of quiet.
The sense of the presence of God, and the patience to wait for the coming of these things…with the wisdom to know them when they come.
