"But the land that you are going over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water by the rain from heaven, a land that the Lord your God cares for. The eyes of the Lord your God is always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year". (Deuteronomy.11:11-12)

Dearly Beloved in Christ,

Greetings to all in Salem Mar Thoma Parish in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Merciful God has helped us to enter a new year by the great mercy of God. Let us thank God for all the good things and blessings that we have experienced during the last year. I express my gratitude and love to all the parishioners who have cooperated in all the programs which were held in our parish in December.

In Deuteronomy.11:12, it says, the eyes of the Lord your God is always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. The word "always" means something astounding when it's related to God. But God can focus on us intently with indescribable intensity and interest. And He has that same level of concentration upon every other person. Maybe we're tempted to think that God watches over the spiritually elite more than average, ordinary people. But the Bible makes it clear that it's impossible for God to forget us; in fact, it's impossible for Him to ever take His eyes off us. The term 'Always', when it comes to God, means perpetual. Even though when we are one of His children, He observes us, sees us, and focuses on us as carefully. God's eyes never get distracted from us. God's eyes never get bored watching over us. God's awareness about us is just as real and continual when we go through wonderful moments in 2023. We must hold on that much tighter to God. Realize that God and our relationship with Him will outlast and as we cherish each moments in our life in a New Year let it be thankful to God and let praise His Holy name. Remember that the eyes of the Lord are on you always from the first day of the year until the last day of the year - always. We as a family from the bottom of our heart, wish you all a meaningful, prosperous, and blessed New Year 2023.

May God Bless us all abundantly.

V. T. Thomas Achen.
