Write to Joyce
It’s already eleven in the morning where I am, and yet I can’t help but feel that the day is only just beginning, after all, the year has only just begun. How do you start a day, especially if it’s the very first day of the year? Simple I guess, you start it the way you should start each and every day that is given you, you start it with HOPE.
HOW DO YOU START A NEW YEAR?
You start not with a heart full of burden,
but with a heart that is empty and waiting to be filled;
you start not with eyes soaked in tears,
but with a vision clear and sure for the year;
you start not with doubts nor anxieties,
but with trust upon God and upon your God-given seeds;
you start not with demands,
but with a grateful heart for all that you have been given through the years;
you start not with anger,
but with a forgiving peaceful heart;
you start not with jealousy,
but with a spirit that rejoices with your friends;
you start not with defeat,
but with a victorious voice;
you start not with chaos,
but with a prayerful song;
you start not with evil,
but with good, and an enlightened heart;
you start with all that God has given you,
and with the hope of all that is to come,
knowing that whatever happens,
you are a child of God,
and destined for something
even more wonderful
than the stars!
