I love things that are new. New clothes, new household items, new potatoes, a new Year.
As you ring in 2012 with your friends and family, may all the promise the year represents be yours. Every year comes with its own surprises, triumphs, and tragedies, so that when we look back we say we never saw that coming.
My wish for each of you is one of hope–that your talents will be used, your pursuits will be fruitful, your careers furthered, your friendships deepened, your faith renewed. May 2012 carry you closer to realization of your favorite dreams and fulfillment of your heart’s longings.
I’ve enjoyed the journey through 2012 with you. Your comments and feedback have been uplifting, helpful and fun. Happy New Year.
Hebrews 12:1b-2a: “Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”
