Dawning of a New Year

2014 is knocking at our doors. 
Can you believe this is the last day of December and the last of 2013?  It seems this year has flown by.  I still remember the first of Summer, wishing for the days to last.

Life is fleeting.  We must learn to take nothing for granted.  Do you remember the quote I used in a previous post? 

"What if, when we wake up in the morning, all we have is what we thanked God for today?"

 This applies to our everyday lives, of course.  Not just during Thanksgiving, or Christmas.  We should wake up every morning and fall to our knees before the Holy King.  Is He the first thing that comes to your mind?  Ashamed, my answer is often no.

Strive this new year to put God before you in all things.  I can guarantee if you do so, this year will be one to remember.

Happy New Year!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
