"This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do this day is important,
because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving something I have traded for it.
I want it to be a gain, not loss;
good, not evil;
success, not failure;
in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it."
May your new year be filled with peace, light, love, family, many friends, and laughter!
