    I feel like in recent years,

    I've drifted away from my closeness to God. I put more focus into certain things than I did with Him. I know it's not too late to get that closeness back. It's of utmost importance to do so this year.

    In His Hands

    I am not sure what will happen tomorrow, or past that.  All I know is that I will keep having faith in the Lord, because I know he has a purpose for me in this life.  I know God loves us all, and he will bless us along our way.

    What Is the Goal of This Life?
