I’m so glad to be alive. I’m grateful for each new day that I’m allowed to wake up to. And I’m profoundly in love with God Who has journeyed me through so much more than words could ever adequately convey here. He has been my constant companion, my light in every dark corner, my pathway out of every dark alleyway, and the Love Who has so tenderly carried me from dark places of anxiety and despair to this new serenity and profound empowerment of my spirit and mind.
I’m especially grateful to God for all the wonderful people who have blessed my life over the past year with their presence, wisdom, comfort and companionship.
As I venture into a new day and a new year, I’m aware that my cup runneth over with goodness, blessings, joy and possibility. As joyful as my spirit is, I’m also keenly aware of the pain and suffering around me, of the struggles and fears that abound in the people I love and in the people that they love. And so my heart is full of prayer for all, prayer for peace, prayer that Light and Love shine into every nook and cranny of every life that touches mine, and on into every life that lives and breathes in every nook and cranny of this entire world. A tall order, but my new mindset of hope and serenity tells me that all things are possible, so even this, peace-in-the-world, is possible.
My friend Angelika posted a comment awhile ago that led me to adopt as my new Year’s resolution the mandate to make at least one person happy each and every day. If you do the math, if I do that – if we all did that – imagine the accumulative effect by this time next year! It’s do-able. It’s within reach. As Angelika put it: “If every person on this earth would only make one other single person happy, then this entire world would be happy.”
Happy New Year to all who enter here!
I wish each and every one of you Peace, Happiness, Love and Light,
enough to fill each moment and day to overflowing,
enough to provide happy, healthy, safe passage through 2013.
