Another New Year dawns, laden with hopes and promises.
I welcome the New Year with gratitude.
Thankful to be here
and conscious and aware of this wonderful dawning.
And these are the thought now running in my mind:
I love therefore I am.
There my my parents love which gave birth to me.
But first, there was God, who out of His great love, willed me to be.
Thus from the very start, love has defined my being, my being here.
I am here; I am now because of love.
In my being and the love that made me possible
are limitless possibilities unbounded by space or time.
Because I am, I can.
Just being here makes everything possible.
If I were not here, nothing would have been possible at all.
The gift of the here-and-now is a gift of limitless possibilities,
And I have in myself everything I need
to be able to do anything that love prompts me to do.
I should beware though
for the love I am capable of can be corrupted
so that I can also hate instead of love.
Since I can, I will.
I will always choose love.
My possibilities become realities only through a strong will to action.
Love should therefore define what I do
and what I do will determine what I get in life.
I cannot allow the things that I have determine or define who I am.
May the LORD bless you and keep you!
May the LORD let his face shine upon you,
and be gracious to you!
May the LORD look upon you kindly and
give you peace!
