Looking back at the year that was, we could only pray in gratitude for all the wonderful blessings that came our way, and pray for the same in the new year and the years to come.

I see not a step before me as I tread on another year;
But I 've left the Past in God's keeping,â??the Future
His mercy shall clear;
And what looks dark in the distance may brighten as I draw near.

-Mary Gardiner Brainard (1837-1905)
