The angel stood looking at the calendar. "How is it that humans have calendars? What is this thing about a new year?"
The Lord looked at the angel for a moment and then spoke these words...
"A new year is a precious gift... you see there are no bad memories with it... it is brand new... there is no sorrow on it for the days are yet to be... it arrives with the beautiful sunrise all new... ready for man to make his mark upon it... a gift...I would say... of the most value... It only asks that they give it their best.
It holds all the possibilites in the world... it holds love if they will only accept it... it holds joy if they will believe in it... it holds dreams if they will dream... and it holds miracles if they will only open their eyes... they will see them.
A new year... unfolding before their very eyes... and each day I will give them my love...my blessings... and I will walk with them each step of the way. There is nothing in this new year that I will not be there for them in... nothing that shall get to them unless it passes by me... and in anything that happens to them... it is my promise that I will work all things together for their good... if they will only believe.
A new year is like watching a glorious sunset... knowing that each color is created in splendor... They needed time... broken down in seconds... then in minutes and then in hours to help them understand that each second is indeed precious and that every minute counts... and that the hours become days... and then weeks and then months which make up the years.
This is their lives... and they need to know they have the power not only to make each one count but to change them into moments of blessings... hours of splendor... weeks of looking for the good in all things... months of seeing one miracle after another... beginning with the sunrise... and ending with my signature of love...at the close of the day as they take time out of their busy lives to enjoy sunsets... and then years of cherishing those I have placed in their lives... all adding up to the sum total of their life on the earth...
And then knowing that as one year ends and another begins... it is a brand new page... yesterday has passed... tomorrow is yet to be... but this day... this new year is just waiting for them... to behold all the blessings... all the miracles...
You might say... it is my way of saying "Happy New Year to my children on earth."
A brand new day... a brand new year... It awaits them... with love.
