HappyNewYearCard2013New Year

To leave the old with a burst of song;
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the things which bind you fast
To the vain regrets of the year that’s past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of the not worthwhile of the days grown old;
To dare go forth with a purpose true,
To the unknown task of the year that’s new;
To help your brother along the road,
To do his work and lift his load;
To add your gift to the world’s good cheer,
Is to have and to give a Happy New Year.

I Am the New Year

Life, 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 out
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.
