I’m writing to express my good wishes to you for the coming year. May each of you be blessed with everything you hope for and more than you’d dare to pray for! I have absolutely no doubt that God looks lovingly upon each one of us. Though the distance between us and our benevolent God may seem too great to us, it is never too great for God. Our comings and goings, our joys and our sorrows, our celebration and our mourning are of the utmost importance to the One who has given us this life. This year, may each of us use this life and live this life to the full! This year, may we finally be convinced of God’s love for each and every one of us!
I add a word of thanks to those of you who follow this blog and who forward it to spread the Good News to your families and friends. My thanks also to those who’ve read my Lenten book and who are in the midst of SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT… FOR CHRISTMASTIME AND WINTER DAYS. You honor me by taking my words to heart. You also inspire me to continue this writing ministry. God has placed many wonderful people in my life who’ve inspired me for as long as I can remember. It seems I can’t help finding stories in the gift of their presence. My thanks to each one!
Finally, I thank You, good and gracious God, Who fills me up so that I’m compelled to write. What more can I ask for than to continue this life in Your love which gives meaning to my words?
Happy New Year, indeed!
