This bright new year is a time of renewal for all of us in mind, body and spirit. Our personal resolutions are the lists in front of us, while the perseverance to accomplish them, comes from within.  For me personally, I rely on generous helpings of courage, hope and gratitude as I move forward to fulfill the promises that are important to me, each year. I know that God has special plans for each one of us, and no matter what they are, and to what path they may take us, may we have an abiding faith that the best is yet to come.  So, into this new year we go, and I wish each one of you all that you need in the months ahead.
