Some days can seem so very long, the click of the passing minutes echoing like a time bomb. On those days I think, “I just want this day done”! Other times, the moments slip through my grasp like tiny grains of sand. I want those moments back, but they are gone forever. 2018 will be complete in just a few short hours. As I think back over the months that created the year 2018, I smile and I cry. There were wonderful times and hard times. Nothing special and everything special, because isn’t that just life? Filled full of both good and bad. And yet, moments that instantly turned to memories, and I don’t want to forget.
On this New Year’s Eve I don’t want to write about parties or plans.
I just want to reach out and touch your hand.
I don’t want to worry about pain or age.
I am just happy to turn the next page.
As this year comes to an end, I want to think about how words can mend…
How love can heal, how God is good, knowing what is real, and doing what I could.
I want to consider what I can do to make 2019 better for you.
