Happy New Year!  I love looking back at the year and seeing all the changes

that took place.  Many times we go through ups and downs, victories and

losses, challenges and blessings.  I hope that you can look forward to

2017 with hope and excitement.  Each day is truly a gift and we must choose

to live with purpose.  We all are making an impact on others in our lives and

I choose to live in a way that encourages and lifts up those around me.  I

pray that you will be blessed beyond measure and know how much you are

loved by the God of the Universe.  Bring on 2017!
