Thoughts at the beginning of a New Year

‘We will open the book. It’s pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. This book is called opportunity and it’s first chapter is the first week of the new year.’ – Edith Pierce


The start of the new year is always greeted with enthusiasm. There is a sense of beginning a new journey, leaving old and worn roads behind us, making positive changes in our lives and looking forward in hope.
We won’t be able to change the world, we won’t be able to do a complete changeover, but we can be open to trying some small positive changes in our lives. Every day presents new opportunities but especially the start of a new year. We welcome these opportunities and for us to know that God is gently journeying with us in all our hopes, dreams and plans for the New Year.
