Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

May this NEW YEAR be a song of THANKSGIVING, an offering of PRAISE, a celebration of GOD’S LOVE in HIS Amazing GRACE! - by me

How do you measure a year? In daylights, sunsets, midnights, cups of coffee… in laughter & strife. Remember the love. Measure your life in SEASONS OF LOVE.” I hope you have a lot of these seasons to look back at in 2008 and wishing you many more of them in 2009. A happy new year! - by me
