Happy New Year!

Irish Sea from Iona ~ July 2006


May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work that you do
with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal
to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert,
approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

I need to make that prayer part of my life while remembering how much outlook and attitude affect everything.

Happy New Year!

What a beautiful prayer. It seems particularly appropriate for someone like you who is contemplating or in the ministry. Sending new year wishes to you and yours.

Kind of a tall order, no? :)

Happy New Year, Robin. Here's hoping that 2007 brings you the resolution to all the questions you've been wrestling with.

I'm sending this on to everyone I know. It really does focus the mind on what's important and has helped me think more clearly about a life change. Toasting you (with the non-alcoholic egg nog I'm enjoying)and giving thanks for prayer and all of your lovely entries throughout 2006.
