It's going to be happier !

As the new year begins
 I seek your help O Lord 
to make me be better than I have been last year...
better in all the various roles I play...
and most importantly help me to be a better human being...

Help me to live each day in a way
 that my heart beat matches with that of the world around me...
Help me to match my nature with Nature
Help me to dive deep into life every day...
... and do keep me away from shallow living

Help me to listen to the song 
in my heart
Hold my hand as I create...
and help me to fill my creation 
with the colors of JOY !!

Help me to practice gratitude
to rejoice in the things I have...
Help me just BE...
and to be under your guidance...
always ...always...

Hope you all have entered this new year with new hopes 
and am sure you have heard 2013 whispering..."it's going to be happier"  :)

Do you like my little birdies which I have painted with coffee !
...I have added a bit of color here and there to 
bring in that drama :)

Love and fond wishes...
