Janus 1-4-19

Recently at church our priest shared that the names of the month came from the romans. The romans named each month after a god. January gets it name from the god named Janus. Janus was thought to have two heads. One looking behind him and the other looking in front of him. The premise for naming January, the beginning of the new year, after the god Janus was to reflect on the year behind us as well as the lessons learned. Take those lessons and leave the past behind us. Walk through the new open door and look forward to the year ahead of us. I thought it was a great way to reflect on the past as well as the future. Learn from it and move on. May 2019 bring many blessings your way 🌹
