Let’s Start the New Year Right


One minute to midnight
One minute to go
One minute to say good-bye
Before we say hello
Let’s start the new year right
Twelve o’clock tonight
When they dim the light
Let’s begin
Kissing the old year out
Kissing the new year in
Let’s watch the old year die
With a fond good-bye
And our hopes as high
As a kite
How can Love go wrong if
We start the new year right?

~Irving Berlin

Christmas Prayers, Like Ornaments of Handblown Glass - Part 1

Let’s start the New Year with lightness, with songs of heart…

to sing over ourselves… to proclaim over our world…

to bless and heal and lift our hands to His wonders of Joy…

and drink a cup of cheer

Happy Giving Thanks Day!

… know that you yourselves are God’s temple

and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst…

1 Corinthians 3:16 NIV


Happy New Years Eve!

    Darling poem, Pam. I’d never read it before. Sheridan bought Mother all of Berlin’s songs in a big album this Christmas. She loves playing them, and I, singing. Happy New Year! May it be right for you.
