Recipe for a Happy New Year.....
Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time. Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.
Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution. Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.
See how God shower His love and happiness for you. Hope you like this recipe.
This is one of my favorite New year morning wish I want to share with you.
"A Morning Wish". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . W.R. Hunt
"The sun is just rising on the morning of another day, the first day of the new year. What can I wish that this day, that this year, may bring to me?
Nothing that shall make the world of others poorer, nothing at the expense of others; but just those few things which in their coming do not stop with me but touch me rather, as they pass and gather strength:
•A few friends who understand me, and yet remain my friends.
•A work to do which has real value without which the world would feel the poorer.
•A return for such work small enough not to tax unduly anyone who pays.
•A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed.
•An understanding heart.
•A sight of the eternal hills and unbelting sea, and of something beautiful the individual hand has made.
•A sense of humor and the power to laugh.
•A little leisure with nothing to do.
•A few moments of quiet, silent meditation. The sense of the presence of God.
•And the patience to wait for the coming of these things, with the wisdom to know them when they come."
