Prayer for Strength and Wisdom
Grant me the strength from day to day
To bear what burdens come my way.
Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear.
Help me to live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.
Let me not bitterly complain
When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
Lord, as the days shall come and go
In courage let me stronger grow.
Lord, as the new day dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
Keep me from selfishness and spite;
Let me be wise in what is right.
A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
~Edgar A. Guest
Happy New Year everyone!
So most of you probably know by now that we are having a baby GIRL, atleast we are 95% sure its a girl. Janie said in the envelope that we will check again on my next ultrasound (February 2nd). We have decided on the name, Madison Elizabeth. I don't really have much more new information other than that. I went to the doctors and the heartbeat sounded good (in the 130's). We also have a maternity ward tour scheduled for January 18th. We also began working on the nursery, so after its finished I will post some pictures.
