Happy Sunday

Now we have the new year.

So what do we do with it?

We have prayed for it.

We have made resolutions for it.

We have expectations of it.

We have hopes of

And wishes for

And dreams about

Our New Year.

And we have a duty

To make improvements

In ourselves

Our conduct

Our faith

Our world.




“A new year is unfolding—like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within.

Lord, let this year be filled with the things that are truly good—with the comfort of warmth in our relationships, with the strength to help those who need our help and the humility and openness to accept help from others.

As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us go forward with great hope that all things can be possible—with Your help and guidance.”
