For me, the holiday season is one of reflection and expressing thanks for all the blessings I've received throughout the past year. This year, I am thankful that each one of you have allowed me to be a part of your lives in some small way.
My prayer for each one of you is best expressed by the chorus in Josh Groban's "Thankful", that goes as follows:
So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see
It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for.
May you have overflowing peace, hope and joy as you celebrate this season, with an attitude of gratitude for the things you already have. I pray that 2009 will be filled with expectations of what you know can be, and that you will be prosperous in all that you desire to do.
