A New Day Lies Before Us
“The future lies before you
Like a field of driven snow.
Be careful how you tread it
For every step will show.”
We have before us … a new year, a new season, and a new day filled with new hours.
My mother has always taught us from her life & favorite scripture:
“So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
And it is so true!
We each have the opportunity to invest ourselves more in the lives of others, so that
we will leave this year so much richer that when we started it!
How will our lives will interact with others?
Have we loved?
Have we really lived?
Have we mattered?
The wonderful news is, as long as we have breath, we can decide to live a life walking
with God, with purpose, and full of love for others.
Please never take for granted the life you have!
I encourage you to …
Put your life in God’s hands.
Show kindness more than you ever thought you could.
Enjoy the little things about each day – the sunrise & sunset, the stars, and a simple smile.
Love others like you’ve never loved.
And live each day to the fullest!
Let’s walk purposefully in 2016, because others will be following in our steps!
