    2014 is here, how many times do you suppose we will write the wrong figure before realizing we are into a new year? We look forward to each day, week, year knowing it is a mystery, if it is happiness, we will enjoy it all the more not knowing it is about to happen. If sadness we couldn’t enjoy life daily until it came. So thanks be to God he gave us life to live to the fullest, one day at a time. Many of us enjoy the song someone wrote entitled “One Day At A Time.”
