Standing at the Gates of the New Year

Sacred Mystery,
waiting on the threshold of this new year,
you open the gates and beckon to me:
"Come, Come!
Be not wary of what awaits you as you enter the unknown terrain,
be not doubtful of your ability to grow from its joys and sorrows.
For I AM with you.
I will be your Guide.
I will be your Protector.
You will never be alone."
Guardian of this new year,
I set aside my fears, worries, concerns,
I open my life to mystery, to beauty, to hospitality, to questions,
to the endless opportunity of discovering you in my relationships,
and to all the silent wisps of wonder
that will draw me to your heart.
I welcome your unfailing Presence
and walk with hope in this new year.
