Let us remember our past, but let us recognize we are standing in the present.
Let us embrace the things that have been placed in our laps and let us choose to hold them with great care.
Let us stand a little braver, a little stronger, and with a little more confidence in the fact that we don’t have to have it all figured out just yet.
Let us delight in the skills and talents that bring us great joy, while remaining thankful for the gift of creativity and craft.
Let the momentum of the first of the year remind us that we are also given a fresh start each morning.
Let us be renewed by His Grace, and in our gratefulness, let us share it with those around us.
