The End of The Year Is Coming!

We have made it through Christmas and, hopefully, free of traumas, illnesses, binges, and COVID 19 with our masks and hand sanitizers intact. I hope this has been a lovely holiday for you and that Santa sent you all that you wanted. Today I am choosing to share a poem: I found it and it is so beautiful I wanted to share it with you. I have no idea how it came to me or where it was created; if you do, please tell me.


A Prayer for Peace


May we see the day when war and bloodshed cease,

When a great peace will embrace the whole world,

Then Nation will not threaten nation,

And mankind will not know war.

For all who live on earth shall realize

That we have not come into being to hate or to destroy.

We have come into being

To praise, to labor, and to love


Compassionate God, bless the leaders of all nations

With the power of compassion.

Fulfill the promise conveyed in Scripture:

I will bring peace to the land,

And you shall lie down and no one shall terrify you.

I will rid the land of vicious beasts

And it shall not be ravaged by war.


Le love and justice flow like a mighty stream,

Let peace fill the earth as the waters fill the sea.

And let us say: Amen.


A litany from the Conservative Jewish Machzor, or High Holiday Prayer book


May 2021 be a beautiful, healthy. happy year for you and those you love. May you find, create, achieve, and enjoy all the things you wish for this year.

Blessings to you,

    Beautiful prayer, perfect wish for always. I remember the hope that bloomed in the late 80’s early 90’s. I work for a defense company and lost my job because of it, but it still was good news..
