Stir together golden dreams of hope.
Add a cup of New Year's light.
Catch flakes of Heaven's drifting snow,
To make the mixture pure and white.
Add to it a stirring of Angels' Wings,
Bearing Joy, Love, and Inspiration.
Blend into the mix a Prayer of Hope
To God for the souls of every nation.
Frost your cake with Loving Kindness,
And then to make it especially nice ...
Give a large serving to the world;
And Peace on Earth with every slice!
Dear Lord, please give me ...
A few friends who understand me,
and yet remain my friends.
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would feel the poorer.
A mind unafraid to travel,
even though the trail be not blazed.
An understanding heart and a sense of humor.
Time for quiet, silent meditation.
A feeling of the presence of God.
And the patience to wait for the coming of these things,
with the wisdom to know them when they come.
