Happy New Year- Let There Be Peace On Earth

I went to an all girls Catholic camp during the summers.I loved the sisterhood I experienced! Each night we would have campfire and sing songs. This is the song that always made me think. The one that made tears well up in my eyes, although at twelve, I wasn't sure why!

I am wishing each and every one of you, my dear readers, a wonderful 2011. I hope that as this year closes you take a moment to realize how important you are in someones life. How special you are. You are to me!! Thanks for reading, commenting, and all your encouragement! I hope I have made you think, laugh and learn! 

I can't wait to see all the blessings in store for us in 2011!
Love
The Mrs.

Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
We are family.
Let us walk with each other
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

(child)
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
We are family.
Let us walk with each other
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

I went to a Catholic camp as well and we sang this song too.
I also went to 16 yrs of Catholic school and this was sung as well.

All the best for a wonderful year to you and yours.

A beautiful picture of your family.
