|O come, desire of Nations, bind|
In one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid thou our sad divisions cease
And be thyself our King of Peace.
As this past year of oh, so much violence comes to a close, I pray for greater peace in the coming year. Peace in our towns, cities, states, countries and the world.
As we enter another year of life, I pray that we will all stay faithful, peaceful, kind to ourselves and our loved ones, reach out to others, cultivate our relationships that mean so much to us, and keep God in the forefront of our lives.
Our faith, our Father & His Son is all we have left to hang onto to get through each and everything.
We are blessed.
