December 31, 2016: Happy New Year!
A New Year Prayer
Thank you, Lord, for giving me the brand new year ahead.
Help me live the way I should as each new day I tread.
Give me gentle wisdom that I might help a friend.
Give me strength and courage so a shoulder I might lend.
The year ahead is empty, help me fill it with good things.
Each new day filled with joy and the happiness it brings.
