The Weekly Bible Verse this week our children learned yesterday is a wonderful verse to start the New Year. How will you choose to sing His praise this year?
Peace and hope are often associated with Christmas, even among those who do not celebrate Christmas as a Christ-centered holiday. For many, the one-two punch of Christmas and New Year give people a sense of a fresh start and hope for a better future. But those hopes often dissipate as the holiday festivities fade.
