As the Holiday Season approaches it is hard to believe another year has past us by. This is a great time of the year, a time of great joy for many and perhaps sadness for others. I hope for all the joy out shines any sorrow. We are living in the most challenging times since the great depression and probably most of us did not go through that time but heard of the difficulties and trials people faced through our parents and grandparents. The one thing we can learn from those difficult times is that no matter how bad things got, the people we love family and friends seem to comfort us and sort out the truly important things and lessen the burdens that everyday life brings, bringing forth a hope for a better tomorrow. Hope brought about by the faith we have in a great God and love that he gave each us so unconditionally, that no matter how bad things get we are guaranteed that He will never fail us and see us through our most difficult times. This Holiday season I wish everyone
comes to know the joy of the living God so that you may be comforted as we face the many trials that we may encounter in the upcoming year. I am thankful to all of you for your support and many your friendship. May the New Year be filled with Joy and may the worst of your days be only as bad as the best days of the past.
God Bless you,
