New Day, New Year
"Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them."  Isaiah 42:9

I am the new year.  I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.

I am your next chance at the art of living.  I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the past twelve months.

All that you sought and didn't find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination.

All the good that you tried for and didn't achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do, all that you hoped for but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have--these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose.

I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said, "Behold I make all things new."

May you have a prosperous and peaceful new year.  God's richest blessings to all...
