Blessings at Year End

I remember with gratitude the fruits of the labors of others, which I have shared as a part of the normal experience of daily living. I remember the beautiful things that I have seen, heard, and felt – some, as a result of definite seeking on my part, and many that came unhearalded into my […]

A New Year’s Eve Prayer

A new year is approaching; What does it hold for me? It may bring joy or sorrow; Oh, God, what shall it be? Sometimes my heart is anxious – I think that I should know The way into the future – Each step that I will go. But You, in Your great wisdom Must plan […]

January

And what does January hold?  Clean account books. Bare diaries. Three hundred and sixty-five new days, neatly parceled into weeks, months, seasons.  A chunk of time, of life…those few first notes like an orchestra tuning up before the play begins. Phyllis Nicholson Country Bouquet (1947)

The Joys of January

Start The New Year Right!

There is something so splendid, so abundant about Life’s “second chances” that arrive each morning.  Perhaps it’s because second chances (or third, fourth, and fifth!) are the golden opportunities we thought too good to be true the first time around.  Now we know better.

January – The Month to Dream About the Journey Ahead

January, the month of new beginnings and cherished memories, beckons.  Come, let winter weave her wondrous spell: cold, crisp, woolen-muffler days, long dark evenings of savory suppers, lively conversations, or solitary joys.  Outside the temperature drops as the snow falls softly.  All of nature is at peace.  We should be, too.  Draw hearthside.  This is […]

A New Year, A Fresh Start

New Year’s Day.  A fresh start.  A new chapter in life waiting to be written.  New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.  Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand.  Only dreams […]
