A New Beginning

We must learn to live each day, each hour, and each minute as a new beginning, as a unique opportunity to make everything new, finding “God in all Things” and “Living a Life with Purpose.”  Imagine that we could live each moment as a moment full of possibilities with new life.  Imagine we could live each day as a day full of promises.  Imagine we could walk through the new year always listening to a voice saying to us:  “I have a gift for you and can’t wait for you to see it!”  Imagine a life filled with purpose, wonder, and mystery.

So what must we do?  We must open our minds and our hearts to the voice that resounds through the valleys and hills of our life saying:  “I am the God within, let me show you the way, come and see.”  We must choose to listen to that voice, and every choice will open us a little more to discover the new life hidden in the moment, waiting eagerly to be born.
