Staying up until midnight, or falling asleep just before and being awakened at midnight, to watch the old year fade and the new begin leaves me slightly unsettled. Everyone is stepping out into the new, and I find myself hanging back... lingering in the last few days of the old and encouraging it all to flow on into the new. I'm not quite ready to release the old just because I am posting a fresh new calendar on the fridge. I'd rather just turn another page and the let life overflow... because there is too much beauty to put behind me, too many life-lessons to tuck into neverland, too much yesterday to hide from today. So here I sit, feeling just a bit greedy, wanting it all... past, present and future.
Happy New Year... I hope you raise your face to the sun and feel His warmth and love all around you. I hope life makes you smile, dance and sing... and that you find your heart is overflowing with beauty.
