As the New Year, 2013 is just hours away, we may have many thoughts and goals on our minds and sheltered in our souls. For many of us, it is a time for moving on, and  that very process can be a difficult one.  A thought came to me as it posted a vivid picture in my mind ….the future has a hard time holding our hand, until we let go of the past.  At this time of bright, new beginnings, it is my hope that we can gently and confidently hold the hand of the future and welcome what God has planned for each one of us.
