Quotes and Inspirations for the New Year 2013

Each year that we are granted is like a second chance that God is giving us; to start anew and to pay it forward. What a great opportunity to improve our lives, and to become a better person. We are given another chance to make a difference in this world - One person can make this world a better place to live in. Imagine if we all put our part?! What a beautiful difference!

There are so many problems in this world; world hunger, human trafficking, drug trafficking, health problems, infant mortality, still born babies, miscarriages, and child abuse; far too many to name. That is why I want to look far beyond my problems and contribute towards this world. Lets make a difference in 2013!

Here are some quotes for the NEW YEAR:

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
