A New Year’s Blessing

By Rev. Robert Johnson

In this New Year, may you

DO the good you want to do

REJECT the evils that you hate

SHOW those that you love that you love them

WORK on not hating those you can’t stand

STOP giving in to that one thing you want to stop

REALIZE the devil needs no advocate

GIVE as good as you want to get back

FIGHT against hate and all who promote it

HOPE for a brighter future

LIVE like you want to see it happen

CONTRIBUTE like you know it depends on you

LOVE the Lord your God
with all your heart
with all your soul
with all your mind
with all your strength
with love for your neighbor as for yourself.
