It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

The Chance for Change
The New Year brings the chance for change. All of the things we can rearrange. We start off fresh and eyes aglow. We can make a new start is what we know.
We'll lose the weight, we say at last. Trying to forget we've said that in the past. I'll save some money is the new resolve Anyone know what I'm speaking of?
More time with the kids, less time with TV. This year I'm really going to work on me. I'll tighten it up and get it in shape My what a difference this year will make.
It's not really the resolution That's not at all the real solution It's not even the coming year That will help you cut down on your beer.
The secret does not lie in January The day of the year is not your adversary The season does not make you pass or fail You could do it in June just as well.
How many New Year's resolutions do we keep? Most don't survive the second week. If you want to succeed at whatever you say You must make up your mind no matter what the day.
New Year or not, set your resolve Show the world what you're made of Set your goals and start them now Get to pushing, get behind the plow.
You may not succeed at all the first time You may fall off the wagon and get behind The key is to try again, and try it soon Whether it's January or whether it's June.
The chance for change is always there As long as we're breathing God's precious air Little is really out of your range Just don't miss the chance, the chance for change.
Little changes are being made here at my house this year. The most important change is my budget. That needs tightening up for sure! The other changes, small as they seem, will hopefully help to make my life easier in the long run.
Every day brings some changes into our lives. Those little things that we don't plan on can make a big difference in our lives. If something isn't working, we need to get rid of it and plan a new approach.
I know that when the sun sets on one side of the world, it is rising on the other. And when I consider my life in this way, I can see my own sunsets from a new perspective. I can accept the changes in my life and allow what was once part of my life to pass and wait patiently for what is next.
If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.
