As I begin to write this note, I am not quite sure where to begin. The year 2019 certainly brought joy to many.  Yet, it also brought sadness and pain.  We may have cried out to God and in anger and asked, why?  Sometimes there are no good answers to life’s twists and turns.

However, remember 2019 is in the history books.  The New Year, 2020 mostly awaits us. Certainly there will be a mixed bag of things that impact our lives.  But we have an advocate, Jesus Christ, who speaks to us, encourages us, and loves us without limits. We are God’ children and he loves us without reservation.  He speaks to us a message of hope and love. Listen….do  you hear it.
