Almost a New Year upon us

This Christmas Week seems to have flown by; was it only a week ago we sang in the Carol service and only 5 days ago we celebrated Christmas? The old year is now passing away quickly and the hopes of the new one are appearing. One of my favourite poems for new is 'Promise' by Jackie Kay and it wishes you a Happy New Year.
Remember, the time of the year
When the future appears

Like a blank sheet of paper
A clean calendar, a new chance
On thick white snow -
You sow fresh footprints
Then watch them go
with the wind's hearty gust.
So fill your glass. Here's tae us.
promises made to be broken, made to last.
