Gift #218: A new year

Today is the first day of 2013! Hooray! I hope you had a wonderful first day of the new year. I’m so grateful that we have a new start to each year. The year is a clean slate and who knows what new opportunities, experiences, and relationships await! I don’t make official resolutions at New Years, but I do keep a list of things I’d like to do in the coming year. It’s usually comprised of places I’d like to go, classes to take, new techniques to learn, etc. It’s basically my dreaming list. Some things get done, others stay on the following year, some fall off as my interests change; but it always keeps me open to the possibility, to challenge myself, and to continually experience the world around me.

One of my favorite rituals of New Year is opening up the new calendars! This quote was on the packaging from the cardboard insert for the calendar in the kitchen. It’s from Dayspring company and I thought it would be nice to share with you all today as we reflect on our past and hope for our future.

When the time was right,
The sea parted,
The walls fell down,
The lions went hungry,
The sun stood still,
The star appeared,
The waves were calmed,
The stone was rolled away,
The Lord ascended…
And when the time is right,
The King of Kings will return.
God is never early and He’s never late –
He’s always right on time and His plans for you are good.

I hope that is a comfort and source of joy for you today.

Blessings to you,
