Make this your New Year’s resolution

Dear Customers and Friends:

Personally, I like the practice of making resolutions and setting goals – for myself and for my business. I often put them on my phone as everyday reminders.

During this ongoing public health crisis, we’ve had more incentive to reflect about life and our priorities. So, I’m willing to bet your New Year’s resolution will take on special meaning in 2021. Perhaps you can draw some inspiration from this Guideposts article about a unique gift that really puts life in perspective.

Happy New Year!





Blessed to be a Blessing,

Greg Syfan,

“See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”

Encouragement for the New Year

Carol Kuykendall


I sometimes think New Year’s Day comes at the wrong time of year. I’m usually facing a bunch of tasks left over from the old year, like taking down the Christmas tree and writing thank-you notes.

Then there’s the thought of trying to catch up with all the work I put off during the holidays. I’m behind before the New Year even starts.

“Who can think about new beginnings or inspirational goals in the midst of old concerns?” I asked my lawyer-husband Lynn.

“Let me show you a gift I just received,” he said, pulling an attractively wrapped package out of his briefcase. On it was a card: “To Lynn. May this gift encourage you in the coming year.” It was signed by a friend in his Bible study group.

Lynn tore off the paper and lifted out a beautifully framed message, penned by a professional calligrapher. The message read:

Lynn, Trust Me. I have everything under control. – Jesus

He set the frame down amidst the clutter on the kitchen counter. Slowly, those words began to change my frame of mind. If I needed something to help me carry my old concerns into the New Year, I’d just found it . . . the determination to face each day’s concerns, trusting in the words of this promise from the Source of all comfort and strength.
