Words of Inspiration

The Power of One

One song can spark a moment,
One whisper can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One moment can make one fall in luv.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!


Ashish Ram

A New Year Thought

I said to the man who stood

at the gate of the year,

‘Give me a light that I may tread

Safely into the unknown.’


And he replied,

‘Go into the darkness

and put your hand into the hand of God.

That shall be to you better than light

and safer than a known way.’


The Gate of the year

Minnie Louise Haskins -1908


From all that is broken,
let there be beauty.
From what is torn, jagged,
ripped, frayed,
let there be
not just mendings
but meetings unimagined.
May the God in whom
nothing is wasted
gather up every scrap,
every shred and shard,
and make of them
new paths,

Jan Richardson
