I Wish ...

In the many days that lie ahead,
I wish for you ...
The ability to see Life through the eyes of a Child,
Believing that it can be fresh and new and sometimes even magical.
I wish for you the wisdom of the Aged,
Knowing that no matter what Life brings your way,
Miracles still happen every day.
I wish for you tranquil times of solitude and peace,
That offer, not loneliness, but rest and freedom to your soul.
I wish for you a Life filled with sunshine and laughter
and more happiness in your heart than you can hold with both hands.
But more than all these things,
I wish for you true Joy
And the awareness that Life is rich and deep and abundant...
And so worth the Living.

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you."
Matthew 6:33

"For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
Luke 17:21

"You've always had the Power My Dear,
You just had to learn it for yourself."

To all of my family and friends,
near and far,
I thank you for all the happiness, joy and beauty you bring into my Life.
You are all so dear.
I wish ...
a
Happy New Year
to
You and Yours
from
Me and Mine.

    I'm thankful that children keep us hopeful and pure hearted. I wish they didn't grow up so fast!

  2. Still surprised, we found each other, but what God wants is never a coincidence. I'm reading, And Toto, Too, written, by my pastor, Nathan Castle. It's exactly on target with your post. Love you so much.Genie

    1. There are NO coincidences with God ... You are absolutely Right about that My Dear One!

      You and I are usually on the very same wavelength ....
      Love YOU so much,

    1. I am so sorry my Sweet Friend... I somehow missed this comment...
      Thanks for your kind words about my little mittens :-)
      They have been a favorite knit of mine for many years.
      I have made countless pairs locally and to ship all over. So many I have lost track. I could make them forever... the thought of warming tiny little hands just does something to warm my heart...
      I think 2017 is going to be a biggie for you and yours Dear One...
      With Love...
