I know this has been a difficult year for a lot of people for a number of reasons. The economy has impacted so many of us in ways that we had no idea would happen. Perhaps your family has been touched by health issues, relationship problems, job losses , the loss of a home, or worse, the loss of a loved one.
My prayer is that you have a renewed sense of hope as we look to the New Year. May you know that the God that created the universe, the Lord whose birthday we just celebrated is there to wrap His arms around you, to protect you and to give you peace.
