A New Day. A New Year.

January 1, 2016. First light on the horizon. Frigid cold wind. Clear sky. The morning star a presence in the east. A beautiful day dawns in nature. A new day. A new year. Gratitude.

New Year’s Eve, the Spirit was about our home all evening. Light and songs and games and laughter. Celebration. Joy. Happy. Satisfied. A warm fire. Playing with the dogs. Renaissance. Revival. Renewal. Outside, stars and night sky. Snow on the earth. Christmas lights still up on the houses. The way our family closed out the year spoke of the way we live in God’s care, despite our human failings. The Spirit was about our home all evening.


Prayer: Love is my new year song, my hope and joy,…my new year prayer for you and me.


“Fidelity to grace in my life is fidelity to simplicity, rejecting ambition and analysis and elaborate thought, or even elaborate concern.” – Thomas Merton

“Love is the answer, and you know that, for sure.” – John Lennon

  1. Thanks David for all your inspiring words this past year. They help me to address issues of depression, anxiety, worry and lack of Joy. It is only thru Christ that I can defeat the negative. Blessings to you and your family for 2016. With Love, Todd
