Happy New Year 2016-b
Today’s Reading: John 8:12 Version CEV

Happy New Year! All celebrate with joy, happiness and parties. Congratulations, congratulations! A year has passed full of experiences, activities of all kinds. Someone once said, past events bring light to our present for the hope of the future.

We all have hope, dreams and expectations, especially at the beginning of a New Year. We are credible actors in the theater of life. Players, spectators, undoubtedly with personal and communal experiences that in some cases will be remembered for a lifetime. Diseases, loss of loved ones, job changes, and marital status, birth of new members in the family, successes and failures.

For the wise, all these facts, which are already in the past, have extraordinary value. God has given us the blessing of memory and hope, but sometimes we do not care to remember the events that have been drastic and painful. But for the wise life is like a laboratory where he learned what works and what does not. And this brings hope and light for the New Year so that the future will be one filled with joy and gladness.

Jesus said, “I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.”

Congratulations, congratulations. Happy New Year!
