Happy New Year!

All saints eve sky lantern

 

Another year.

May 2013 bring to you many good things.

It is nearly 2AM and we are enjoying some peace after a lovely evening with friends old and new. We let off a couple of sky lanterns, one to remember the year gone and one to express hope for the year to come. We also used this simple ritual;

1.

We stand on the threshold of another year

The old one is gone and the new one is still mystery

And we offer you our prayers

We watch them rise to you

2.

Last year was full of good things;

Friendship, laughter, music, art

New experiences,

New achievements

For these things we offer you our praises

We watch them rise to you

3.

For some of us the year gone by has had times of great difficulty

The loss of a people who are dear to us

Life has darkness as well as light

So we give to you all those memories-

All those times when doubt, fear and pain were close at hand

We watch them rise to you

4.

The future belongs to you Lord

Each breath, each heartbeat

So we give you our hopes

We offer you our projects

We offer you our dreams

We watch them rise to you
