Chaplain’s Corner

By the time most of you get around to reading this, the New Year will be upon us.  Many of us, myself included, probably ate too much at

Christmas dinner and now here I am facing yet another day of celebration and food.

I don’t know about you but I think I need to make a New Year’s resolution.  I need to dial it back a notch when it comes to food!

Seriously though, I am looking forward to this new year with renewed enthusiasm.  When I look around and see how blessed I am, I can’t help but be grateful to the God and

Father of us all.  How about you?  I am reasonably certain that most of you will agree that life here is pretty good.   Even with all it’s trouble and problems, I believe America is still the greatest place in the world to live.  And if this weren’t so, why would so many people from everywhere else in the world be trying to come here?

So, as we close out 2017 and begin this new year, may I take this opportunity to encourage us all to count our blessings.  And then find a couple of ways to share what we’ve been blessed with, our resources, time and talents, with others we know that may have unmet needs.  Even just a kind word of encouragement doesn’t cost a whole lot but it can really lift the spirits of someone who’s struggling.

Blessings and Happy New Year to you all!
