Anticipation: The Coming New Year

Anticipation: The Coming New Year

By E.R. Smith

I chose to copy this gif because the gift giver is moving. I have always felt that God gives us all intimate gifts that we need. I hold my breathe in anticipation of the new gifts the Creator has for me in the coming year. If I could “shake the box” I would hope for learning more, so that earning more is easy. Will it be good friends eager to share their time, advice, skills—with the same exuberance I have when I share mine? Will it be a new language, so that I can communicate with new folks and create new ventures? Will I effect positive change on the world? Who knows? I await the coming year in anticipation of all that is good, right, and fair.

Whispering in my ear possibilities

Assuring a success that is blurred to my current vision

Touching intimately my spirit, knowing

Certain of my strengthfortitude

Certain of my giftpersistence

Knowing more than I; within me saying, “let go.”

Illuminating all the paths, and steps

New perceptions  reinvent my reality.
