Haiku & CNY

Here's me taking a stab at writing Haiku:

Golden oranges
Pink cherry blossoms in bloom
A new year is here

A new day...

A new day has come. Today America has a new leader, one who brings hope in the midst of economic gloom and financial turmoil. May God grant him much wisdom, strength and grace to make the right decisions - decisions that will have far-reaching consequences that will affect an entire generation and those to come.

It is indeed time for change. May the spirit of hope and virtue, honesty and hardwork live on.

Random thoughts

God has been good. Some decisions are hard to make. I need wisdom.

New look

Somehow I still like this template best.... altho it's the same as pumpkingoestoskool!! Oh, no matter.

Letting go

I think I'm learning to let go. Slowly but surely. :)

I'm looking forward to the move. It'll be an adventure, an opportunity to try new things, make new friends, widen my social circle, take on more responsibility. "The day you decide not to take on challenges is the day you stop growing."

Today has been a day of quotes:

The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it.--John Ruskin

No guts no glory.--Unknown

Prayer for the New Year

Thank God for small miracles. :)


Almighty God,
by whose mercy my life has been
yet prolonged to another year,
grant that thy mercy may not be in vain.
Let not my years be multiplied to increase my guilt,
but as age advances,
let me become more pure in my thoughts, more regular in my desires, and more obedient to thy laws.
Let not the cares of the world distract me, nor the evils of age overwhelm me. But continue and increase thy loving kindness towards me,
and when thou shalt call me hence,
receive me to everlasting happiness,
for the sake of Jesus Christ,
our Lord.

Samuel Johnson: 1709–1794
