It's New Years Day today and that gives us reason to be thankful. Often times, the focus of New Years Day is on moving forward with fresh new goals and resolutions for the year to come, goals and resolutions that often don't make it pass the first month, sometimes the first day.
While goals and resolutions are important as we look forward to the new year. We need to remember to be thankful that we have new year, that we have a chance to start over. As the angelic choir sang in the Veggie Tales version of Jonah, “God is a God of second chances.” Let's be thankful for those second chances, for those new beginnings.
