On the one hand, Sunday always follows Saturday. On the other hand, today is the first day of a new month and a new year. It’s hard not to notice taking down a calendar and starting a new one, or correcting our error when writing the date for a few days. We celebrate the new beginning and resolve to improve ourselves, or perhaps look with expectant hope that the next year will be different than the last.
God is always doing something new. His mercies are new every morning and he is always planning ahead… way ahead.
