Welcome 2013

At the beginning of a new year it is customary to make resolutions for change.  Whether we keep these resolutions or not, recognizing the need for change is as important as structuring a plan to make those changes.

The new year is an excellent opportunity to 'clean the slate'; to ask and offer forgiveness, to mend relationships, to put grievances aside, to leave bad habits behind and choose to start anew.

Then again . . . you may be content with yourself, your relationships and the place where you are.  You may have reason to celebrate the here and now and the bright future you see ahead.

As 2013 begins may you embrace whatever opportunities that afford improvement to you and allows you to make the world around you a better place.

For those who are feeling a bit raggedy, here at the end, or those who need a little hope take a moment to view this story courtesy of  CBS Sunday Morning.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.  NIV  Numbers 6:24-26

    3. Thanks for the link to the Michigan story. We need more of the PAY FORWARD mindset instead of pay later or let someone else worry. Russ's sisters and Kenny's wife Lisa were here yesterday for a brunch. We always try to get together right after Christmas and include your folks if they are around. Unfortunately, they are still in MI, but we still had a good time.
      Hope your Christmas trip was wonderful.

    4. I've resolved to change nothing, but I have big plans;)
