On this day we often reflect on the year that is ending and look forward to the new year. Each year has its high points and low points. If we’ve had a particularly bad year, we may be glad it is over. As we look ahead to the new year, we might think of the following scripture from Philippians 3:13b-14 “but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.” We can know that whether the year is good or bad, we can keep our eyes focused on the goal of serving God. As a writer, I want to remember that very idea as I tell my stories.
I’m looking forward to telling more stories in my Front Porch Promises series. The first book has been out for a couple of years, and I’m excited that the second book will be released in early 2016.
My 2015 was a very good year. How was yours? What are you looking forward to in 2016?
I will give away a copy of A PLACE TO CALL HOME to one person who leaves a comment.
