If you look closely (you can click to enlarge), you can see the green of daffodils breaking through the cold snow near these very old tombstones. I took this picture shortly after losing three people very dear to me. Those little daffodils spoke so quietly and powerfully to the reality of new life, new beginnings, new hope.
And he who sat upon the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." --Revelation 21:5
May the beginning of this New Year bring you life and hope.
