inspiration for the Day

   
 
Another fresh new year is here …
   Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
   To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
   To live each day with zest …
To daily grow and try to be
   My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity 
   Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
   And sing more joyful songs!

William Arthur Ward, 1921-1994
