Comfort for the New Year

Heavenly Father,
At midnight, when the old year dies, and the new comes bounding in, I draw strength from knowing that in the next twelve months the snows will go, the buds will burst, the heat will rise, the leaves will fly, that all these things will happen according to Your schedule and in Your time; that there is order in Your universe, and that I am part of it.
