A New Year Blessing

Here’s a blessing for the new year from Joyce Rupp’s website.  (See link below.)

Blessing for the New Year

I hope for you in this new year of 2004

That the single, most significant dimension of life
is your relationship with the Source of Goodness
who never ceases to sing love songs to your soul

That you find meaning, purpose, and vitality
in what you do daily

That you treasure your loved ones
and let them know how dear they are to you

That you make choices and decisions
that reflect your truest self

That you look in the mirror at least once a day
and smile in happy amazement

That you remember relationships are what count above all else –
more than work or money,
or all the material things we spend so much time tending

That you live in an uncluttered manner,
enjoying the freedom to be content

That you keep your sense of humor
when things don’t go the way you want

That you find adventure in each new day
and marvel at the wonders of creation
which constantly present themselves to you

That you never give up on yourself
when others turn away or do not understand

That you are attentive to the health
of your body, mind and spirit

That you take risks and accept the growth-full challenges that come to you

That you draw on your inner strength and resiliency
when you are in need

That you carry peace within yourself,
allowing it to slip into the hearts of others
so our planet becomes a place
where violence, division, and war are no more
