Where does the time go? Christmas is a memory and we can almost reach out and touch 2009. 2009! Wow! It seems like only yesterday that people were hoarding water in anticipation of Y2K, what a letdown that was.

James was right when he wrote in the Bible: “Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” Life is short, no matter how long we live and while we may not have control over how many years we will have in our life each one of us will determine how much life we will put into our years.

2008 is almost gone you can’t undo or redo what has already happened, but as you look ahead toward 2009 you can determine in your heart that as much as depends on you that you will do your best. Your best as a Christ Follower, your best as a friend, your best as a parent and your best as a spouse. And if you do that, you will have given an incredible gift to those you love the most. And you will have helped to make their year the best ever. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
