One of my favs ...

Sir, I bear a rhyme excelling
In mystic force and magic spelling
Celestial sprites elucidate
All my own striving can't relate

iteresting...heres one:every names a touchstone that leads to a place and time where god has used another soul to reach out and touch mine.it may have been years ago or even yesterday,but every person on my list has changed my life some way.through simple conservation or even a shared meal,every person on my list has helped me grow or heal,or laugh,or love,or learn,or smile,my friends have known me throughout these miles.the blessing never ends as god allows our path to cross as family and friends.so please know that this is more than a new year wish,it is a thank you page for putting them on my list.each and every name i've come to hold so dear,from those who show our god our joy,each day we live with no fear. now beat that!!!! zirionian laughs!!hahahaha! :D hahahaha!
