If you are all going into a dry January after the excesses of Christmas and New Year`s Eve don`t feel too depressed; your resolve may well wear off as January wears on.  I am writing this on the morning of New Year`s Day and I am already looking forward to a little glass of something before lunch.

It is important not to let yourself get too depressed so it might be a good idea to go easy as we go deeper into the Winter and even possibly into another lockdown.  It is a time of uncertainty, but I think we`ve got to hope that the vaccines are going to be what gets us out of this awful situation.

Let`s also put our trust in God, as we go into a new year; let`s pray that we will be safe in his hands, and let`s pray that his peace will come into the world and rest upon us all.

Happy New Year!
