Prayer #47: It's New to You

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. {Oprah Winfrey}

and/or, depending on your mood --

Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go. {Brooks Atkinson}

and/or today's New York Post --


Or maybe thank God for what's coming?

Prayer #47: It's New to You

Welcome to my new morning, new day, new year, new leaf, new lease on life.

And welcome in my heart to the Force that buoys it all -- a power both eternal and unexpected.

Be with me in whatever flows, crashes, or rolls this year. Help me with my resolve to get it all a little more right than I did the year before. Because I'm only going to get there if I get there with You.

    Dear Julia,

    Here is a poem for you.

    Turn off the road. Climb down this ladder with me.

    We’ll hold hands; we’ll look inside together.

    Be afraid if you must. But come.

    There’s freedom down here.

    Wait ‘til you see the cool, shimmering, green grass.

    XO, Jocelyn
