One thing with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us. (Michael Cibenco, English teacher)

The year is rapidly coming to an end, and many will be taking inventory of 2016 to find the highlights to celebrate and the low points to forget. Cibenco warns us not to spend too much time looking at the past 12 months or we may find in just a couple of days that the past is all gone. We have a future to invest in so determine to make it a great year.

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you (Proverbs 4:25).
