My Christmas Prayer for New Jersey
I don't live in New Jersey nor have I ever. But my three daughters live there with their families. This includes my three wonderful granddaughters whom I rarely get to see, but look forward to seeing during these holidays.
In the past I always pictured New Jersey as a dingy urban blighted place. Now that I have loved ones there I've become more familiar with this fine little state. There is actually some pretty countryside, ocean coasts, and small towns. I wouldn't even mind living there one day if that's where my daughters choose to stay.
New Jersey has had it's share of tragedy over the past couple years and I pray for the redevelopment of the areas that were affected by the hurricane in 2012. I also pray for the economy so that many will find prosperity in their lives. My prayers go out to the health and safety for all of the state's citizens.
The United States despite whatever shortcomings it may have remains a great and mighty nation and this is due to wonderful states like New Jersey. May God's abundant blessings fill New Jersey in the coming year.
New Jersey, I will see you soon. Take care of my kids and grandkids.
