on New Years Eve
Sleante is Gaelic for Cheers. Being Irish I am fond of toasts and blessings. While most people are doing their best of's for the year I am going to offer you guys my blessings for the up coming year.
Matt & Denise - May God use what you are learning in school to be used to further the Kingdom of God as your gifts and talents allow. May your relationship grow in grace and love and your time together be filled with joy.
Alex - May you know your true worth, discover your true calling, and come to know a loving relationship with God. May you surround yourself with people who love you and serve you, and people that you too may serve.
Tony - May you be blessed with a home of your own for your family to grow. May the rooms be filled with lafter and stories. And may God lead you to employment that will use your gifts to their full potential.
Rick - I pray your children grow and know the fullness of God's love in their lives. I pray they are kept safe from the trappings of society and know what really matters. May your relationship with them and your wife remain strong.
Jose - May this coming year bring you guidance and a closer walk with God. Through your passion and your words that you continue to serve in whatever capacity you are called to.
Carmel - May your faith and understanding grow. May you share the experience with your fiance and grow together, serving each other in love.
Jess - May you continue to seek the truth of faith as your life journey leads you onward and upward.
Antonia - May you gain much knowledge and wisdom in your studies to use the gifts God gave you to serve those in need. May your relationship be blessed with love and laughter, seeking God first together.
Pastor Scott & Pastor Tom & My Other Favorite Lutheran Pastors (you know who you are) - May your ministries and families be blessed, not by the superficiality of numbers or dollar signs that are perishable, but in love, faith, and joy. And as your families grow in age, may they also grow in knowledge of the Love of God.
Natalie, Frankie, Heather - May you know true joy, passion, and love. Not a superficial momentary flutters, but in the truest sense, that whether alone, or in the middle of sadness, or in the purest of times. And during the journey of your lives may you find what you are seeking.
Todd - I pray your life transitions from uncertainty to moving forward in God's timing and grace. May your wisdom about your direction and the continued blessing of your family, not just out of blood, but love and the holy spirit. And may you win the WFJ heavy weight title under my expert management skills and your reign be long and prosperous.
Logan - May your marriage be a blessing and may you serve her with the same devotion as Christ served the Church. As your life begins together may the transition from single to married go smoothly.
To Everyone - May you stop to smell the flowers. Appreciate the little things. Enjoy your families more, enjoy your friends. Take more time to be out doors. May the smiles outweigh the tears as you seek comfort in God's love. Life is too short to be worrying about useless crap. Let it go and move on.
