“A new year is unfolding—like a blossom with petals curled tightly, concealing the beauty within”

“A new year is unfolding— like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within” is a new year’s saying that has been printed on many images.
 
The full passage is:
 
“A new year is unfolding — like a blossom with petals curled tightly, concealing the beauty within. Lord, let this year be filled with things that are truly good — with the comfort of warmth in our relationships, with the strength to help those who need our help, and the humility and openness to accept help from others. As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us go forward with great hope that all things can be possible — with your help and guidance.”

A New Year

A new year is unfolding
Like a blossom with petals curled tightly
Concealing the beauty within:
Let this year be filled
With the things that are truly good;
With warmth in our relationships
With strength to help those who need our help
With humility and openness
To accept help from others.
