Top ten most popular blog posts of 2021

New Years celebration We are at that time of year again!

The old is drawing to a close.

The new is about to dawn.

How fitting that the new year will dawn on the Sabbath. This will give us a moment (really a whole day) to stop and reflect on what the new year really will mean.

Will it be a new beginning, or a continuation of our old routines?

A Fresh Slate

I always enjoy picturing the new year as a snowy scene. No path disturbs the freshly laid snow. We can choose the direction our feet will travel. Those who come behind us will see and maybe even follow.

Just incentive to choose wisely.

The most viewed blog posts of this year!
