IN THE past few days, how many times have we said or someone has said to us the words, ‘Happy New Year’?
We are at the beginning of a New Year and indeed a new decade, but what will it hold for us?
Of course now is the time for the credit card and bank statements to come through the letterbox or onto our Internet banking screens and we realise just how much we have spent over Christmas.
Last Monday is reputably the worst day of the year for divorces to be filed causing heartache for many families.
The Christmas lights and decorations have been put away and our homes can look quite dark and bare.
Many New Year resolutions already broken and so this adds up to the fact that the month of January can seem a rather dismal time.
In his earthly ministry Jesus Christ met many people whose lives seemed like that, just darkness and with very little hope for their futures, but he brought light, joy and peace into their darkness and gave them a real meaning for living.
Today, we to can experience the Love of God by accepting the Christ Child of Christmas who became the Lord who died on the cross, as our Lord and Saviour.
May the words ‘Happy New Year’ really mean that to each of us for this year of 2020.
