I asked Willa Carpenter, who serves as Human Relations Liaison at Beasley Allen, to write the “Parting Words” for this issue. Willa has been with the firm for more than 20 years and she is a most important person with our firm. In fact, many consider Willa’s role to be the most important one in the firm. She is an inspiration – because of her spiritual nature – to our staff and lawyers. Willa is always available to help folks work through problems they are encountering. She has a God-given talent that allows her to really “help folks.” The following is her timely message for the New Year.
As we face a new year, naturally we begin to think about change and making things better. Each year, many of us enjoy setting new goals for ourselves to achieve in the coming year, such as becoming financially stable, improving our health, or getting a promotion at work. While achieving any one of these goals can bring satisfaction, it is only temporary. But God’s Word says there is a newness that will last for all eternity!
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” We are made new by the covenant created through Jesus Christ. As this new year unfolds, let’s strive to walk in the eternal newness that is found only in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! My hope for each of you is that you will have a blessed New Year.
I join with Willa in wishing for all of our readers and their families a blessed New Year!
