Completely without permission, (Sorry Jimmy A. and Harvest House) I am going to share with you a blessing from the book that was given to Henri Nouwen by his spiritual mentor. It's my personal New Years prayer. For the faint of heart, this ain't no Jabez thing:
MAY ALL YOUR EXPECTATIONS
MAY ALL YOUR PLANS BE THWARTED.
MAY ALL YOUR DESIRES
BE WITHERED INTO NOTHINGNESS,
THAT YOU MAY EXPERIENCE THE POWERLESSNESS AND
POVERTY OF A CHILD AND SING AND DANCE
IN THE LOVE OF GOD THE FATHER,
THE SON, AND THE SPIRIT.
Let's have just one resolution, to BE God's, and let Him do with us as He will.
Happy New Year, friends! I sure do love you.
Claudia, God's child, singing and dancing.
