The New Year awaits us


What a year 2009 was, many many blessings, many lessons learnt along the way

Tears were shed, as we said goodbye to many warriors.Things were extremely hard with the recession, for many. Sports heroes let us down. New presidents came with new hope and promises.

But it was also a year FULL of many blessings, one that saw Deqlan take giant steps ! One that ended on a fantastic note hearing Deqlan continues to remain NED. One full of miracles and maginificent moments.

Many new friends were made, many years of true friendships were treasured.

Our faith grew stronger, God continued to show us the way.

We wish you all the most fantastic year ahead in 2010. May it be full of health, happiness, laughter and above all the presence of God as we start the New Year, afresh and new!

Its going to be a great one for us all, we have so much to look forward to! We have many hopes and prayers for the year ahead for you all. May God continue to guide you, protect you, strengthen you, nuture you, heal you.

We thank you for all the beautiful memories made in 2009, and we look forward to creating many more moments with you all. Dear Lord we ask you for Your Healing and guidance and miracles and love to shine through all our loved ones, whom we treasure. Let us start this year with fresh eyes on the world and we ask you to help us be the best we can be in all areas of our lives.

God bless everyone, All our love, support and prayers for a fabulous 2010 for you all

A New Year Prayer
Holy Father,
God of our yesterdays, our today, and our tomorrows.
We praise You for Your unequaled greatness.
Thank You for the year behind us and for the year ahead.
Help us in Your new year, Father, to fret less and laugh more.
To teach our children to laugh by laughing with them.
To teach others to love by loving them.
Knowing, when Love came to the stable in Bethlehem, He came for us.
So that Love could be with us, and we could know You.
That we could share Love with others.
Help us, Father, to hear Your love song in every sunrise,
in the chriping of sparrows in our backyards,
in the stories of our old folks, and the fantasies of our children.
Help us to stop and listen to Your love songs,
so that we may know You better and better.
We rejoice in the world You loved into being.
Thank You for another new year and for new chances every day.
We pray for peace, for light, and for hope, that we might spread them to others.
Forgive us for falling short this past year.
We leave the irreparable past in your hands, and step out into the unknown new year knowing You will go with us.
We accept Your gift of a new year and we rejoice in what's ahead, depending on You to help us do exactly what You want..
I say it again, we rejoice!
In Jesus name,
