Of course we don't know what this New Year will bring, but we can guess some aspects: the every day life may not be very different, but circumstances can change, sometimes dramatically.
We can dream our dreams and work towards achieving them.
We can pray about a millions topics, but in the end we know we can also pray "your will be done". We have the presence of God in us through his Holy Spirit and that alone should be enough to keep us in focus, alive and well.
May this be your experience for 2014. God bless you all. Please continue to pray for France: "Your kingdom come; your will be done ...."
On a personal note: was blessed by the chance to be in Australia for my Dad's 80th birthday surprise.
