Thread: New Years Wish for all

    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)
