Looking back through last year, what occurrences stand out that had the most impact on you? Was it a weather disaster? Maybe the death of a loved one or the birth of a grandchild? We were very blessed. The storms passed us by and the latest of 7 grandchildren graced our family. Birthdays abounded and life ticked on. When it was all said and done, the good always outweighed the bad. We tend to remember the bad things and overlook the blessings we experience each and every day. Why is that? Are we all so hooked on drama that we can no longer see the blessings? One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the book of Job. He lost it all, but kept his composure and was given back ten-fold what he lost. Many times I fail miserably through my trials but I know who is in control. It is a blessing to know the outcome does not rely on me. The new year is ahead…. how will you see it? And more importantly, what will you do with it? Wouldn’t it be great to be remembered as a person that played a part in that special, positive ”occurrence” that touched someone’s life? Make this the year. God Bless!
