Starting Out Anew

Treasures In The Garden

What can we do…….

As we start a new year

untouched and unmarred,

Unblemished and flawless,

 unscratched and unscarred,

May we try to do better 

 and accomplish much more

And be kinder and wiser

than in the year just gone before-

Let us wipe our slates clean

and start all over again,

For this privilege has been given to all sincere (wo)men

who will humbly

admit they have failed in some ways

But are willing to try to improve these “new days”

By asking God’s in all that they do

 And counting on God to refresh and renew

Their courage and faith when things go wrong

 And the way seems scarey and dark

  and the road rough and long-

What can we do 

when the year is so new?

The choice is ours

……. To make our new year better?


My word for today is CHOICES!”
