As the year turns I feel like a hermit as this New Year's day ends. I want to turn my attention from the days' busyness and reflect on what the days of this past year have taught me.
May I remember those who are too proud to ask for help and those who may not realize that help is near.
May I never close my eyes to the magic of the world around me. May I never be to busy to notice the first leaves of the bulbs that will bring the first flowers of spring or the dance of the last leaves as the winter wind finally takes them.
May the Holy Ones help those who are ill find healing. May they help those without refuge find a place to rest. May those whose minds are troubled find peace. May those whose souls are adrift come to a safe harbor.
May the Holy Ones also help us remember that there are riches that can't be measured on a balance sheet and that a soul can starve while seated at a table filled to over flowing.
May everyone have a great start to the New Year
