I hope your Christmas was a merry one! Have a Happy New Year!
Prayer for the Coming Year
By William A. Bixler.
Our faith has been rewarded by
Your faithfulness and care:
But for the unknown paths ahead
We come to You in prayer,
We ask Your guidance for our feet,
And courage for each day,
That we may serve our fellow man
And help him on his way,
And may we give a helping hand
And have a kindly heart,
And to the sad and lonely one
Oh, may we do our part.

A Year's Calendar.
By Lucy Gray Kendall.
In January the snow is white
Like a clean, new slate on which to write.
In February we think of spring,
For the birds return to build and sing.
In March the crocuses pop up,
Holding a dewdrop in each cup.
In April come the splashing rains,
And wild flowers cover hills and plains.
In May the sun shines warm and bright;
Vacation days are now in sight.
The happy days of June just fly,
And quick as a wink, 'twill be July.
August brings us heat and haze;
School returns with September days.
October has its bright, blue weather;
Thanksgiving and November come together.
December and Christmas follow fast,
And before we know it, the year has passed.
And so the twelve months roll around;
Something nice in all we've found.
We thank God for giving us each one,
For work and study, play and fun.
