May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
|This is a whole oyster farm!|
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you desirous to help.
God's love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

Happy New Year Friends!
I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating this year of 2014 that the Lord has blessed us with!
