Night Watch

“New Year’s Day is a good time to fix one’s eyes on the only One who knows what the year is to hold.” —Elisabeth Elliot

The watch before the dawning 

of a new year and the restarting

of a rhythm that marks time 

with our memories, reminds us 

of our place in this world.  

May we consider the dissolving

of one year as the new one forms 

by unloosing and resolving our

reflections and projecting 

a firmness in our expectation 

to find purpose in what is past

and what lies before us, taking 

courage in the constancy

of diurnal renewal and the One 

who remains steadfast in His love

for us now and in the evermore.
