Happy new year! 🍾 Welcome to 2018! Today begins a new year. A fresh start. A clean slate.
I hope as the ball dropped last night and you toasted in the new year, saying farewell to 2017, that each of you took a moment and said a little prayer of thanks. For 2017. Whether for the blessings it brought or simply that it’s over. For a better 2018. For God’s favor to rain down upon you.. For new beginnings.
That’s the kind of God we serve. A God of new beginnings. No matter how good or bad your 2017 was, each tomorrow offers us a new day. A fresh start, a clean slate. Baby Jesus born in that manger brought us that grace. That forgiveness. That hope.
Let’s all begin this year, 2018, with great expectations for our new year. Let’s offer up prayers to prosper. Prayers for good health. Prayers for love. Not just for ourselves, but for all. Then let’s begin living. Really living. Not just existing. One prayer at a time. One day at a time. Put aside the hatred. The bickering. The judgment. Let’s join together. One nation under God. Only then can we truly make America great again.
Here’s my toast to you! Here’s to new beginnings. At home and across our nation. Happy new year my friends! I love you! ❤
This month shall be the beginning of months for you, it is to be the first month of the year to you. Exodus 12:2
Love and laughter,
