Happy and Prosperous New Year to All

Dec 31, 2015, 9:47 AM

As we enter a new chapter in our world, that is the year 2016, which opens on Friday, we would like to wish everyone a blessed and prosperous year.

The year 2015 has come and gone, and a lot has been achieved in many areas of our lives. But there are lots ahead of us to accomplish, for which the year 2016 has provided an opportunity. We must, therefore, thank God Almighty for seeing us through to the year 2016, which stands before us waiting to be written and rolled out with new sets of goals.

The new year presents another opportunity for us to correct our mistakes, learn from our shortcomings and disappointments, and accomplish what we will. All we need is faith in our Creator God Almighty and the spirit of serving one another genuinely, as we prepare to make ourselves our brother’s keeper.

Sarah Ban Breathnack, a publisher and author of Simple Abundance, says: “Take a leap of faith and begin, this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a living Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.”

We would, therefore, like to convey our best wishes and love to the people of The Gambia and dear ones both at home and abroad as the calendar changes from 2015 to 2016.

We would thank the Almighty God for having seen us through 2015 as a nation, families, individuals, corporate bodies and entities, and pray that the year 2016 be a more blessed and prosperous one.

As we have always been advocating, we should continue to be united and show love to one another, especially to people going through some spiritual and moral crises by talking less about them, getting closer to them and praying more for them.

We should as well continue to work hard to build our economy and make The Gambia a better place for humanity.

May the Almighty God help us to achieve our heart desires and national dream of sustainable growth and development, as we enter and roll out the year 2016!

Wish you all, especially our dear readers and advertisers, a very happy and prosperous New Year.

“Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.”
