Abide in me

Happy New Year…. That almost sounds shallow this year…every time I said that to friends or family I felt as though it didn’t really say how I felt. I wanted to say something more like – Have a safe new year. Remember what is important this year. Stay close to Jesus and keep your eyes […]
