Last Friday, we celebrated the birth of Jesus, the waiting and the journey is over. On twelfth night we will take down and put away our Christmas trees, decorations and cards and we venture on with another journey into the New Year,not knowing where our journey will take us or who we might meet on the way,

But there is one guarantee, that Jesus, our Guide, will be walking along with us, side by side. He will be listening to our Prayers, our sorrows and our worries. He will be our companion.

In these strange and sometimes lonely days ahead, please make time to be a companion to someone; a phone call, a little note in the letterbox, might make all the difference. You can be assured what you get out of these acts of kindness, might be small, but to some will be priceless.
