"Today is where your book begins — the rest is still unwritten…"

I’ll be preaching about this song in my homily for Sunday.

I think it’s a great way to kick-start the new year, with a message of new beginnings and resilient hope.

Enjoy.  Happy New Year — happy new you!

  1. Deacon Greg,

    I love your blog and you are right, this is a great message of New Begginings. God Bless on your ministry. I am an aspirant in the Diocese of Manchester NH.

  2. Deacon Greg,

    I had the fortune of seeing Natasha Bedingfield perform live in NYC several years ago when she was still very unknown. So unknown in fact, that hardly any of the audience (it wasn’t her own concert, but rather, a company/organization which had hired her to sing at their annual party) stopped talking as she took stage. Nevertheless, Ms. Bedingfield showed great courage and gave a wholehearted performance. It’s nice to look back at that moment now that she is a bonafide success, and appreciate all the hard work she put in over the years. Therefore, for me, this song reminds me not only of new beginnings, but of perseverance and conviction of self, two more messages that I think in the New Year should be kept in mind.
