Here's to Endless Possibilities. Happy New Year

"I said to the man who stood at the gate of the new year, 'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.' And he replied: "Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way."
King George V 1898

As White as Snow

I am looking forward to the coming winter season, esspecially Christmas. Here in Rhode Island we have yet to receive a blanket of snow. When I think of the winter season I can't help but Think of Isaiah 1:18 which reads, Come now, and lest us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be  as wool. What a good reminder the snow can be to us that through Christ we can be made clean and white even though we are stained with sin.
