I am taking a moment to express my praise and thanksgiving for the end of this year and the beginning of this next year! God has been good to me. My health my family my friends and colleagues are just a few of the blessings God has placed in my life. I did not have to be here but He has seen fit to give me the opportunity. My prayer is to live this life to His glory in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
