At the in-gate of a New Year
Walking up the chute, through the in gate, into the ring and into the unknown at an important show? Who doesn’t have butterflies ??
What about at the gate of the New Year? These words give me perspective and still my butterflies as I consider the unknowns of 2013 – the economy, health, family…you name it.
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."
He replied, "Go out 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."
In a war time speech by King George – not knowing Britain if would ultimately win the war.
