Let us walk over the threshold of this day with new hope.
Let us leave behind the shadows of a dying year, and journey in the light.
Let us press on to what lies ahead, and to the One whose hold will carry us through.
Let us rise each day to the dawn of His countenance.
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
