New Years and New Starts

I am a big fan of Dan Fogelberg. There are those out there that would say WHO? But he sang a version of Auld Lang Syne that was about life, and change .

I think that the New Year brings change, and hope and a time when we can start over.

We can be kinder

We can be gentler

We can be more forgiving

We can let go of resentments and old hurts.

We can be more giving.

We can be more thoughtful of others

We can be more Christ like.

All of these things may seem like trite phrases but I like to think that turning the page on a new year is time to start something new. We can’t change the past, but we can do better going forward.

Heavenly Father Gracious loving God. Thank you for this day, this week, this New Year. It is truly a gift, this time we have. Don’t let us squander it, but do the best we can with this gift you have given us. Let us start this new time of promise doing the best we can in your name. Amen
