The Best Thing to Hold Unto in Life : Jesus

As this year draws to a close and another one quickly approaches, their is a tendency to rush ahead, after all a shiny new year is up ahead with all the promises of grandeur hidden in it's wings, and I, like many people am so ready for the possibilities that it holds.
