New Beginnings

New moon, sliver of silver,
cycle anew, giving promise
of new beginnings. We forget
every moment is a new beginning.

Did I fall down? Did I do
something unforgivable?
(This word should not exist!)
Let go–truly let go of past pains.
Learn from them; then let them
dissolve like morning mists.

Today is a new beginning
filled with opportunities
to love, learn, to embrace this
special moment in our short
time here on Earth. Make each
task, a task of love. No chore
needs to be a chore. When
we offer all we do to our Creator,
even the most humble activity
is elevated.

Take a deep breath–really feel
it fill you…slowly let it out;
know that in this breath, you
are alive. Let this breath be
filled with gratitude, faith,
and peace. Your life is what you
make of it. Surrender to it;
cherish it, love it.

  2. I am so with you on this one, Pat! I go so far as to say each “moment” is a new beginning. We can start fresh with every breath we take!
    Beautifully written and wonderfully said!

    Thank you for visiting, Marilyn. Isn’t it important to remember that we can and, indeed, should, try again. Like a toddler learning to walk, we fall, get up, try again, and someday we can walk, even run! We are all spiritual babies learning, growing, and sharing. Hugs, pat
