2012 was a year that was filled with insurmountable challenges, tragedies and great victories. Each year presents a myriad of events, planned and unexpected, that will either leave us shouting for joy or crying with deep sorrow. Despite the good, the bad and the ugly that we face in our lives day to day, our spirit finds a sense of resiliency that gives us hope, courage and joy.
In spite of the pain and suffering, senseless and horrific evils that are imposed on innocent people, we still see pockets of support and unity that binds us together in agape love. As we ring in this New Year, just like any other year we lived through, we do not know what tomorrow brings in the uncertainty of life. Yet, we count on the decency and dignity of people to surpass mediocre thinking and behavior, that lifts us up, when we feel defeated.
Look to this year ahead with hope in your heart. Know that we will always deal with the uncertain, but as long as we fall on our knees and pray for God to see us through, then we know that we will make it…in spite of.
If we continue to do the same ole thing, we will get the same ole results. New Year…New You…New Changes…New Beginnings…New Life!!!
