An ending or a new beginning?

She was only 44. That’s when the brain tumor finally took Heidi’s life. Heidi was an amazing person. I know many people say that when a loved one passes away, but she really was. Heidi was a doctor, an accomplished violinist, and often led the charge in organizing events to help the homeless or other people in need. She had a zest for living life to the fullest, and had several remarkable adventures in her short time here on earth. It was her kindness and compassion that really attracted others to her. Heidi was special, but the demon cancer, unfortunately, is no respecter of age.

What are your resolutions for the new year?

As we roll from one year to the next, we hope life will be better somehow. We aim to be more dedicated, more disciplined and more devoted. And yet, statistics show that New Year’s resolutions for are often dropped by the second week or third week of the year. Some of us avoid failure by not even considering resolutions. Others of us take a realistic examination of our lives and ponder carefully what changes might be made. Small adjustments are more likely maintained, and changes rooted in a secure identity of value and dignity, not shame and blame, are much more likely to bring positive transformation. Christians believe this secure identity is found in unity with Jesus Christ, the divine-human child, whose birth we are still celebrating. This is the One who helps us to understand how valuable we are in the eyes of God.
