A fresh new day.
A fresh new year.
I’ve never looked forward to a new year as much as I did for Y2017.
Y2016 was exciting and fun, but posed a lot of challenges, work-wise and otherwise.
So as I start on this year, I pray that Y2017 will be kinder and sweeter.
I pray for good health, peace, joy and serenity for me and my loved ones
and attained goals and happy clients and employees for our company.
I pray I will fear less, and have more faith as the kids tread on new paths.
I hope to see new places and reconnect with dear friends.
All in all, I just want a peaceful, quiet, healthy, meaningful life.
Well, it may not truly be a simple wish but I affirm this in my life now.
Lord, please grant this wish and please make the world a more peaceful world to live in.
Thank you for all the blessings in Y2016.
I claim all Your provisions for Y2017.
Thank you and goodbye, 2016!
Hello and hugs, 2017!
All parents wish we could protect our kids from life’s hurts.
We hurt when they hurt.
If we could carry their pains, and spare them from the hurts,
we would. I would.
But we know these pains can only make them stronger.
And their life could only get better after every challenge.
Lord, please protect our beloved children and heal their hurts.
Make their heart full of Your love, that they may seek & glorify only You.
May they know that we are one with them in their hurts,
silently praying for them to be healed.
May they have acceptance
And surrender to You knowing they will never be alone, with You by their side..
“Life is between B and D. Birth and Death.
C is about Choice. Choose to be good, to be happy.
Choose CHRIST in this life.
After D comes E. Eternity.
No more pain, no more sadness.
Eternal joy in Heaven. With God.”
Father Jerry Orbos, SVD
