Ushering in the New Year

So I haven’t posted at all really in the last 3 weeks.

And in the last 3 weeks I’ve been sick, a dear couple I am blessed to call friends got married, Christmas came and went (although I barely saw Christmas day since I spent half the day sleeping) and now that December 31st is almost here, I am going to spend the next few days continuing to be quiet and read and listen for God and when he wants to tell me about the coming year. I feel so much expectation for the new year.

There’s an excitement about a “fresh start.”

But I think instead it’s going to be a new chapter instead. Not so much of a starting over as a building upon the last 29 years(!).

I’ll be spending the next 11 months contemplating something really good for the big 3-0 birthday coming up next December. My boss’ wife says I should do something big. And I’m thinking that’s not a bad idea… It’s just figuring that all out…

Hopefully you’ll be there for the journey.

But, until January 1, 2011, I pray that you and yours have a wonderful New Year’s celebration. I’ll be at my church’s annual New Year’s Eve service. If you’re in the Springfield/Northampton area (and that’s a big area), service starts at 8:00 p.m. (give or take a few minutes) and if you need directions, check out the website here.
