The first day of the New Year is gone


Today I am thankful for the ability to see the beautiful sunrise from my front veranda. What a privilege to have the means to live in a house with such a beautiful view! My camera does not do the various colors justice! (I am still learning to use it...WILL get it right!!)

(A poem by Dr. Heartsill Wilson)
This is the beginning of a new day.
I have been given this day to use as I will.
I can waste it, or use it.
I can make it a day long to be remembered for its joy,
its beauty and its achievements,
or it can be filled with pettiness.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever,
but I shall hold something which I have traded for it.
It may be no more than a memory,
but if it is a worthy one I shall not regret the price.
I want it to be gain not loss, good not evil, success not failure.

May you all be blessed on this gorgeous day!
