Happy New Year!

Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, “It will be happier.” (Alfred Lord Tennyson, 19th century British poet laureate)

We’ve been waiting for 2020, and now, here it is. As Tennyson wrote, many of us are glad that 2019 is over, and we’re hoping for a better 12 months ahead. Like everything else in life, things happen one minute at a time, then one hour, then one day—on and on it goes 366 times (Leap Year). Be patient; give each day your best effort to make it a good day.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:6)
