Reflections on a New Beginning

I love this season, New Years. It seems that at this time of the year people are  filled with hope and are in a positive mood. It must be the promise of a fresh start and the anticipation of all the possibilities that the New Year holds. We seem to be focused, at least temporarily, on the new beginning. New beginnings intrigue me.  My life has been filled with second chances, so I know something about new beginnings.

Beginning - to commence, start, come into existence. We all have experienced beginnings in life; new schools, careers, relationships.  There is no beginning, however, so widely considered as that of the New Year.

You have likely heard comparisons of the New Year to a book with 365 pages that are yet to be written upon. For many years I kept a hand written journal. These days I keep one electronically, but I do miss the feel of the hand written page. I used to relish obtaining a new journal filled with blank pages each representing a new day, a fresh beginning, new ideas and thoughts to be recorded, answers to prayers to be remembered, accounts of promises to keep and the record of all that makes this life so uniquely wonderful.

For many of us this is a time of reflection; we take stock of our lives. We look back and ponder how to make things better in the coming year. Many establish New Year's resolutions and try, at least for a little while, to keep them.  This process I think is worthwhile. It’s good to reflect on the positive and negative, to review our strengths and weaknesses and to make some attempt to improve ourselves.

And so we stand on the threshold of a new year with 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes to fill, hopefully, with all that is good and worthy and noble.    

Moses prays in Psalm 90, "So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom."  We do have, God willing, days to number and pages in our journals to write. I pray that we use them wisely, creatively, usefully and joyfully.

My warmest and most sincere wishes for a Happy New Year!

Joe Harris
