Happy New YOU!

So here we are at the end of another year.  Some of us had a year that was full of happy times, joyful reunions and success while others had a year full of disappoinments, tragedy and sorrow.  Whatever the year brought you did it encourage, inspire, motivate, empower?  Did it make you love those around you more and love things...less?  Did it help you appreciate the small things and the forgotten people?  Did you take better care of yourself due to new medications?  Were your failures used as learning tools to get you to the next level?  I could go on and on but what I need to know, and what I need you to recognize is that, this year holds the OLD you.  What will the new year hold?

I pray a new you.  I pray a new outlook on life.  I pray a new level of courage and thinking. I pray a closer relationship with the Lord our God.  I pray more love and less hate.  Bad things happen but we cannot change them..we can only learn from them.  Those lost relationships, friendships, loved ones, material things, jobs...what can we do about them now?  We can't go back and I hope none of us want to.  But what we can do is change the way we see them.  Change the way they made us feel.  Change the way we view our own lives and in turn...change ourselves.  There's not much more I can say here.  We saw nations rise up against nations in war and rumors of war.  We saw the disrespect of our nations President.  We saw trains collide and planes fall out of the air and ships sink...we saw innocent people beaten and killed...we saw people ravaged with famine and disease...we saw parents crying at the roadside where their children were killed in accidents...we SAW.

Now, let's turn that around and let's SEE.  Let's see what we can do to make the world a better place.  Let's see how we can love our family more.  Let's see how we can teach our children and our grandchildren to be kind and just to themselves and to others.  Let's see what we can do to improve our neighborhoods and schools...let's SEE..and when we see...let's ACT.  A new year is upon us and we are thankful to have made it this far.  Let's go into this new year with hope and faith.  Let's go into this new year motivated to do more and to be more.  Let's go into this new year ready to face whatever life may bring.  A New Year for a New YOU!
