2013 has already begun in Dubai as I write this. Soon, it will be our turn here in Chicago. It is amazing that the world revolves around the sun so accurately that the Winter solstice was achieved perfectly at 5:12 aM on December 21 and we headed back toward Spring.

I pray that you all have a Happy New Year and that you grow closer to Jesus Christ in 2013.
