End of the Year Thoughts

The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come. (Bangtan Boys, Butterfly)

Sometimes we look back for the wrong reasons. We wish we had done something different, or that something hadn’t happened. Pessimists will look back over 2022 and recall the failures and disappointments. Others will remember the joys, blessings, and achievements of the year, be pleased with where they are now, and happily anticipate the New Year.

Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you (Proverbs 4:25).
