God Bless You in the New Year

A few weeks ago, Basil brought home a little book from church that Christian Church of San Angleo was giving to their members. It is called "Bless Your Children Every Day" by Mary Ruth Swope. I loved it so much, I bought a copy for each of my daughters for Christmas. I would like to give a blessing to you for the new year that I paraphrased from this book:

I bless you with godly wisdom and discernment. May you always have a reverent fear of the Lord and a respect for His Word.
Keep on growing in spiritual knowledge and insight so you can always see clearly the difference between right and wrong.

May you be wise in heart and always be doing those good, kind things that show you are a child of God.

I bless you with a spirit of success. You will not be overcome by a spirit of failure, but you will be blessed with a spirit of achievement. You will not be prideful because of this, but you will glorify God.
You will be like a tree planted by the river of waters. Your leaves will never fail, and you will bear fruit as long as you live.

Thank you for the book. I need to start using it. The trees near Mo Ranch remind me of the verse about being like trees by rivers of water. It's one of my favorite verses - I want to be like that.
