Happy New Year

 So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Today is the first day of a brand new year.  We each have the same clean slate, a second chance, and like you I am wondering what I will put on it and what will I do to mess it up.  I don't know about you but I am choosing to keep God at the center, taking one day at time, this new year and relying on His strength to get me through each day.  I want to leave the right footprints, I want to be an example to others and that the light of Christ will shine through me.

Another Year Is Dawning
by Frances Ridley Havergal, 1874

Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting, another year with Thee;
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.
Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.
Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above;
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.
