Words Revolving

Original water color painting "Behold the Man, The Word Became Flesh " copyright © 2005 Debbie Turner Chavers My new birth, birthday is January 1st of each new year.  As I enter into a new year I contemplate the hope that most of us feel with a new beginning.  Diets, new resolutions, new beginnings are on most of our minds. So with that in mind I want to encourage you to find a verse that will help you stay focused on a positive move forward in your own everyday life.
