Happy New Year

Spirit & Truth
Today is the Eighth Day of Christmas, New Year’s Day, Celebration of the Holy Name of Jesus, & the Feast of St. Mary.

Happy New Year
The old year has gone, but the New Year is full of treasures for you to use.” Paramahansa Yogananda

Maybe we enjoyed some amazing accomplishments in 2009.We can be grateful for those beautiful memories, but we can’t live in the past. There are more accomplishments to be had. Or, perhaps 2009 brought disappointments. And while we can acknowledge those experiences, they, too, are forever in the past. We mustn’t allow the past to keep us from experiencing the blessings that are available now. Rather than reliving the past, let’s create the future we deserve and desire. 2010 is a New Year with new opportunities. Let’s make the most of them!

What amazing treasures will this New Year offer me? I’m willing to find and enjoy the gifts that are waiting for me.
