|The celebration of a New Year.
The day we officially turn the worn page,
which is both woefully stained with mistakes…
and remarkably highlighted by small victories.
Today, we look forward with hope
to the markings in the next chapter…
We pray to be more careful in the forming of our words,
but less careful in the intimacies of our souls.
More careful of our sorrowful laziness
and less careful when pursuing our passion.
More sure of God’s melodic Word
and less sure of the lies carved in our skin.
Today, because of God’s grace and His unimaginable mercy
we turn the page.
With pen in hand, we begin to scrawl…
with all the force of what’s behind
and all the magnetism of what’s ahead.
Happy new page,
Happy new year.
