“There is nothing I can give you
which you do do have not:
But there is much, very much, that
while I cannot give it, you can take.
No heaven can come to us unless our hearts
find rest in today. Take heaven!
No peace lies in the future which is not hidden
in this present instant. Take peace!
The gloom of the world is but a shadow.
Behind it, yet within reach, is joy.
There is a radiance and glory in the darkness, could
we but see,
and to see, we have only to look. I beseech you
See the joy in this wonderful new year!
