…Behold, I make all things new…— Revelation 21:5

I found this poem and I believe it speaks for itself. My prayer is that we take these words to heart and put them into practice.

I Am the New Year – Author unknown

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 last 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 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.” I am the New Year.

Blessings for a New Year filled with hope and expectation, love and laughter, peace and joy.
