The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make His face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up His countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.
I read this Prayer for the the New Year on Ellen's Blog and
liked it so much I'm posting it here too.
A New Year's Prayer
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
Happy New Year to you all.
This month on my walks the coins I found added up 62 cents.
A quarter, 3 dimes, 1 nickel, and 2 pennies.
For the year 2016 I found a total of $3.81 and is the least amount I've found in a year.
The most coins I found was in 2008 when I found $20.43.
I started saving the coins I found on my walks back in 1997.
My banks hold a total of $243.35.
I keep track of the steps I take on a site called WalkerTracker and this year I have taken 5,431,045 steps. That includes steps taking all day long NOT just on my walks.
That comes out to about 2,716 miles which averages about 7.5 miles per day.
Maybe I can beat that this year.
