The birth of a child signals the beginning of firsts. As a parent you can probably remember many in the life of your son or daughter; turning over for the first time, baby’s first word, baby’s first step and baby’s first tooth…
Imagine, however, as you “turn the page” on a new year that you are facing a day of firsts! What will be the first words spoken to a loved one, a friend or more importantly to a stranger?
Time and again in 2013 we have an chance to offer first words.
My prayer is that with each of these first words spoken, may they be reflective of God’s blessing and peace. Amen.
