New Year, New Hope

We rise this morning with the sun into a new day of a new year.

Stepping out of a year that was full of surprises, change, emotion, and fear.

Yet, we see the sun shining.

With each step, we journey into new mercy and grace.

We know there are always unknowns to face.

Yet, we see the sun shining and we have strength.

We speak good tidings to those we meet and greet.

Knowing there is unfinished business to complete.

Yet, we see the sun shining and we have wisdom.

We breathe in crisp air in the cool winter morning.

Breathing this year brought new fears, rules, and warnings.

Yet, we see the sun shining and we breathe more deeply.

We hear the noise of the world beginning again.

Traffic, the news, and voices, can cause emotions to blend.

Yet, we see the sun shining and have peace.

We look at the numbers, stats, and grieve with heavy souls.

We know there are those with such suffering that no words can console.

Yet, we see the sun shining and we reach out

For hope.

We see the sun shining and we step into hope.
