Happy New Year!

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. . .. The book is called opportunity. (Edith Lovejoy Pierce, late American poet)

Pierce continues: “We are going to put words on them ourselves. And its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”  2021 with all its joys and many disappointments is gone. With memories of the good days and ignoring the bad ones, we take pen in hand to write our journals for 2022. We begin with hope and expectation and endless opportunities. Let’s make the most of each one.

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on. (Philippians 3:13-14a)
