A long time ago, my kids authored a new year offering. I want to put it here for posterity's sake. It is sweet, coming from the hearts of children.
My sweet, Jesus! We thank Thee for all the blessings in our lives up to this moment, especially for those of the past year. We offer the new year, for love of Thee. Please guide our steps in a greater love and understanding for Thee. We ask many blessings upon our home and family. We pray for peace and love and perseverance in grace. We beg Thee for justice in this new year. we long to be with Thee, Dear Jesus. Amen.
Hmmmm.........wonder how much I helped them. :)
