My friend Shereen shared the following poem with me by email. I thought it was a great poem to share this first week of the new year.
I will light candles this New Year.
Candles of joy, despite all sadness,
Candles of hope where despair keeps watch.
Candles of courage where fear is ever present,
Candles of peace for tempest-tossed days,
Candles of grace to ease heavy burdens.
Candles of love to inspire all my living,
Candles that will burn all the year long.
For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. PSALM 18:28
We will also light a candle today for Sam the Man's birthday.
Homemade brownies a' la mode will be on the menu. Sending sweet wishes your way for a terrific Tuesday. Blessings of peace, joy and love. Tammy
