Welcome 2012!

  A New Year's Prayer

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;
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 anxious to be there to help.
God's love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

 New Year's kisses.

On the stitchy front, I'm making this "quick" one for Nathan.  
I'm also trying to work on my WIPocalypse.  I keep thinking of things I want to stitch so this should be an interesting year!

If you're already in 2012, enjoy it - if you're still in 2011, the best is yet to come...
