Happy New Year

The following was posted by Catherine Pappas on my favorite foodie blog, Living the Gourmet.
I would like to share with all my readers.

Holy Father,
God of our yesterdays, our today, and our tomorrows.
We praise You for Your unequaled greatness.
Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead.
Help us in Your new year, Father, to fret less and laugh more.
To teach our children to laugh by laughing with them.
To teach others to love by loving them.
Knowing, when Love came to the stable in Bethlehem, He came for us.
So that Love could be with us, and we could know You.
That we could share Love with others.
Help us, Father, to hear Your love song in every sunrise,
in the chirping of sparrows in our backyard,
in the stories of our old folks, and the fantasies of our children.
Help us to stop and listen to Your love songs,
so we may know You better and better.
We rejoice in the world You loved into being.
Thank You for another new year and for new chances every day.
We pray for peace, for light, and for hope, that we may spread them to others.
Forgive us for falling short this past year.
We leave the irreparable past in your hands, and step out into the unknown new year knowing You will go with us.
We accept Your gift of a new year and we rejoice in what's ahead, depending on You to help us do exactly what You want.
I say it again, we rejoice!
In Jesus’ name,
Happy New Year to everyone. I keep you in my prayers that this year is even more blessed and memorable than the last.

To all my followers of different faith's, May our Gods, Yaweh, Jehovah, Buddah, Allah and Braham bring everlasting peace to our world.
