One of my favorite old hymns is based on this verse, "He Giveth More Grace." ❤️&🙏, c.a.
From some famous writers
As we walk into the second day of this new year and reminisce on 2021 going down in a fiery flame of hopelessness. Looking back is not really a good thing to do unless you’ve left some valuable lessons behind. And then for others, the feelings were so indescribable they found themselves wordless to speak or write. But after digging around in the famous writers’ research gallery, I hope these quotes will give you happy feelings and a brighter hope for new beginnings.
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” ― T.S. Eliot
“There is nothing magical about the flip of the calendar, but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas.”
― Jason Soroski
“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” ― Benjamin Franklin
“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”
― Melody Beattie
“New Year’s Eve always terrifies me. Life knows nothing of years. Now the horns have stopped and the firecrackers and the thunder… it’s all over in five minutes… all I hear is the rain on the palm leaves, and I think, I will never understand men, but I have lived it through.” -― Charles Bukowski
“A new year … a fresh, clean start! It’s like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on! A day full of possibilities! It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy … let’s go exploring!” – Bill Watterson
“You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” ― C.S. Lewis
“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ― L.M. Montgomery
“The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.” ― Ezra Pound
“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards.” ― G.K. Chesterton
As the Apostle Paul reminds us: Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. (Philippians 3:13-15 NKJV)
With this new year, we should all have a different perspective. One of hope, new creations, and new beginnings. So keep pecking those darn keys! Until next week…Blessings and Peace!
