Several years ago, someone (author unknown) composed the following
list of wishes for the new year:

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs, and your
stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your
cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your
cardiologist, your gastroenterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your
podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber, and the IRS.

May you find a way to travel from anywhere to anywhere during rush
hour in less than an hour, and when you get there may you find a
parking space.

May December 31 find you seated around the dinner table, together
with your beloved family and cherished friends, ushering in the New
Year ahead. You will find the food better, the environment quieter, the
cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything
else you might ordinarily do that night.

May you have the strength to go through a year of presidential
campaigning, and may some of the promises made be kept. May you believe
at least half of what the candidates propose, and may those elected
fulfill at least half of what they promise, and the miracle of reducing
taxes and balancing budgets happen.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in
you delight them. \

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you
finish dinner, may your checkbook and your budget balance, and may they
include generous amounts for your church and charities.

May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your
spouse, your child, and your parent(s). You can say it to your
secretary, your nurse, your butcher, your photographer, your masseuse, your
seamstress, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor, but not with a
"twinkle" in your eye.

May we live as God intended, in a world at peace with the
awareness of the beauty in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every
baby's smile and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our

May God bless you with happiness, great health, peace, and much
love during the next year and all those that follow.

To the list above I add one thing:

"I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your
heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will
know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has promised his holy
people. And you will know that God's power is very great for us who
believe." (Eph. 1:18-19, NCV)
