Chapter 1, Page 3, Book 19


Life I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am you opportunity to practice
what you have learned about life
during the last twelve months.

All you sought and didnt find is hidden in me, 
waiting for you to search it out
with more determination.

All the good that you tried for
and didnt achieve
is mine to grant
when you have few conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didnt dare do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have 
these slumber lightly
waiting to be awakened 
by the touch of a strong purpose

I am your opportunity
to renew you allegiance to Him who said,
behold I make all things new.
I am the new year.

January 3rd - opportunities


And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been.

We make choices every day — what to eat, how to spend the day, what to think.  Yet sometimes we neglect the incredible potential that is ours.  Our options seem to be limited by people or circumstances.  But we all have control of our attitude, and that is what defines us.

Attitude matters. How you rebound from a setback speaks volumes about who you are.  Your attitude makes all the difference.


Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending.

Opportunities come in all sizes and shapes, they come when we least expect them. Some come in the form of problems or hard work.  We now have 363 days left of 2019 to make it the make it the best year ever.

I believe life is full of opportunities. Opportunities are what will make our year.  Recognizing opportunities and responding to them, seeing opportunities and seizing them.  


A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.

Forgive me, but I am only going to quote you, this is so true, good one.

I like it.

So true that we need to look for the opportunities and then see how we choose to respond to them. It is good that every year we are given a new opportunity to do so. Like that poem said, blank pages lie ahead of us. It is up to us how we will fill them.

Oooh, do you ever wonder how someone can pen something so splendid -- and choose to remain anonymous?
If I were to begin looking at challenges as opportunities, what a difference it might make. (Cancel that. Not 'might make' … it will.)

Some people are so clever with words - I am always saying I feel the same way - but the way I said it or explained it didn't sound as pretty!
