Another Year is Dawning

I’m spending this New Year’s Day plugging away on the 100-verse book; but it’s coming along nicely and though I’m a little tired, I’m not in a panic about it.  Katrina and I had a quiet evening last night, a simple supper of leftovers, an hour of TV, and some reading.  In bed by ten.  I’ve learned that the New Year can arrive just fine without my having to stay up to unbolt the door.

Today is a great time to remember the famous hymn by Frances Havergal (sung to the tune of “The Church’s One Foundation”).

Another year is dawning,
Dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting
Another year with Thee.
Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days.

That’s my prayer for today.  From Katrina and me:  Happy New Year!

PS – And Happy Birthday to Grace!
