HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017

Some thoughts...



Good riddance to 2016!




Always know that a moment of darkness is an opportunity for light...




...and don't let anyone ever steal your joy.


Remember to give thanks...




...and lets help to make this year better for everyone everywhere.

  3. Happy New Year! Hope it brings everything you wish for. My ten year old insisted we wait up for midnight so we could "toast" in the new year. She said it is going to be a great year. That is my wish for everyone. Catherine in south MS

  5. What powerful words. I know you don't talk politics on here, so I'll just say that I hope, and I pray, that 2017 is a good year, because I'm a little nervous at some of the possibilities.

  9. I saw this on FB this morning and think it is worth repeating. Though it is not mine I think it echoes my sentiments exactly
    Life is best for those who are enjoying it;
    Difficult for those who are always analyzing it;
    And worst for those who are criticizing it.
    Our attitude defines our life.
    May God give you a beautiful and enjoyable life in the New Year!"

  13. Each day, I endeavor to judge only myself; whether my level of kindness towards other is sufficient for the production of peace in the world.
