Each Day

A new year just beginning,
Each day a fresh, new start,
To fulfill your hopes
And pursue the dreams
Sustained within your heart.

Put God in charge;
He’ll plant the seeds
Of affection, love and care.
Like a garden, your life will grow
With kindness flowering there.

And as you face the wonder
Of each day’s mysteries,
You’ll see God’s hand
Unfolding, daily, possibilities!

And as each day comes to a close,
Dream a dream or two,
Then with a prayer thank dear God
For each day given to you.

~Father, thank you for new beginnings… new chances with each new day’s dawning and even a greater taste of new opportunities with every new year. Please help us hold onto this optimism and sense of renewal, keeping our eyes on You and our hands in Yours, on the roads You have laid out before us.
~Amen.
