January. JaNewRay. TheNewRay



  1. Having been made or come into being only a short time ago
  2. Still fresh


  1. Radiance; light
  2. A small amount; a trace
  3. A straight line extending from a point

Let’s talk about new old things. By old, I mean something that already exists or has been always there. And yes, something old can definitely be new.

It can be new when the eyes are new; when the perspective is new; when the heart is new; when the self is new.

How can two people who regularly saw the same sunray not have the same reaction — one saw it with a smile and the other one just squint and frown?

Could the person have seen a ray of hope and that ray is more than enough?

Or he simply saw a ray?

Could the person have seen a burst of warm love and felt it deeply?

Or he simply saw a ray?

Could the person have seen an extended grace and never doubts its source?

Or he simply saw a ray?

Shall we now look close enough with the old and discover something new? I just did.

January. JaNewRay. TheNewRay,Yeah!

TheNewRea? But my hubby isn’t old —  yet 🙂

Happy New Year! Happy New You!


I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. – Ezekiel 36:26-27

      You have voiced out my thoughts about you dear Colleen! Partly I think I know the reason why we click: because we have the same Master — and we’re comfortable being crazy! Just most of the times 🙂

      Earlier this morning I was awakened by the thought that this post is full of wrong grammar so I tried to correct it but I’m not even sure if it’s right already. Oh well, some things don’t change — just like God smiling on me 🙂
