Happy New Year everyone! The end of 2016 has come and gone and 2017 is here. Last year was quite the year…ups and downs, political turmoil that seems to be only beginning, world events, and more. It can be tempting to despair, to worry about what this year may hold. We aren’t promised an easy life, after all. However, I’m trying to remember that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today. and forever,” and He will be with us no matter what this year holds.
