New Beginnings
By: Gertrude B. McClain
It's only the beginning now
...a pathway yet unknown
At times the sound of other steps
...sometimes we walk alone

The best beginnings of our lives
May sometimes end in sorrow
But even on our darkest days
The sun will shine tomorrow.

So we must do our very best
Whatever life may bring
And look beyond the winter chill
To smell the breath of spring.

Into each life will always come
A time to start anew
A new beginning for each heart
As fresh as morning dew.

Although the cares of life are great
And hands are bowed so low
The storms of life will leave behind
The wonder of a rainbow.

The years will never take away
Our chance to start anew
It's only the beginning now
So dreams can still come true.
Work isn't to make money; you work to justify life. ~Marc Chagall

Stress should be a powerful driving force, not an obstacle. ~Bill Phillips

If things go wrong, don't go with them. ~Roger Babson

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Defeat is not bitter unless you swallow it. ~Joe Clark

Change your thoughts and you change your world. ~Norman Vincent Peale
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. ~Jimmy Johnson

Now that it's all over, what did you really do yesterday that's worth mentioning? ~Coleman Cox
This week we have the opportunity to do something great.

Great inspiration, Jay... thanks for sharing. I especially like Norman Vincent Peale's charge:  Change your thoughts and you change your world... so very true and a statement I think about often.
