Happy New Year

The calendar identifies today as the first day of a new year but you may feel like it is just the same old same old. It will be exactly that if you are stuck with the same attitudes and unforgiven trespasses that were weighing you down when the calendar said it was last year.

Why not start the New Year right with a Friend that will give you a totally new start. He is able to forgive any wrong you have ever done and even be with you as advisor for the rest of your life if you will only ask Him. If you make mistakes, He will forgive those as well - without slamming you for it. Listen to what the Word says:

“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” 1 John 2:1-2 NIV

Jesus has been my best Friend for over 43 years now and I highly recommend Him to you. Give Him a chance to make this a truly Happy New Year. ec

Eddie, it's so awesome to be blog friends with people who have the same best friend as me! Because even when we might not have anything in common, we have EVERYTHING in common.

God is amazing. His Grace covers everything. And I'm so glad I'm His.

Happy New Year!
