“As the old year retires and a new one is born, we commit into the hands of our Creator the happenings of the past year and ask for direction and guidance in the new one. May He grant us His grace, His tranquility and His wisdom!” ― Peggy Toney Horton

                                      Happy New Year

As the world celebrates
With fireworks and cakes
We're standing here alone
Far away from home
With nothing but history and memories

As the stars surround us like water
We raise our hands in full surrender
To God, our Redeemer
Lord, this year is far from ordinary
We've never seen such extraordinary
People, places and things
Amazing human beings
Searching for purpose, just like us.

Looking around, we wonder
Since a year is like clashing thunder
Booming suddenly
Then vanishing instantly
Why waste time uselessly?
The old year came and went
We hope our time was wisely spent
On helping others and working hard
So that many people may regard
Our lifetime in its weight
And not just because of fate
So learn this lesson, but not from me!
Try it yourself and you will see
Making a difference starts with one step
With one foot, then the next

So walk right now into the light
And find yourself shining bright
Don't worry what people think
Because right now you're on the brink
Of showing others what is true
Happy New Year, from us to you.
