Happy New Year!
Hope yours was as quiet and pleasant as ours. We played games during the day, and did our small family gathering thing with some nice cheeses & crackers & a small taste of an inexpensive champagne at midnight. Didn't especially try to watch for the tv showing of the NY crystal ball droppping down, but we saw it anyway. We caught the pronouncements of the reporters of how the economy couldn't get worse, so it must soon get better' and how 'it was like a church service with John Lennon's "Imagine" as a hymn' and wondered uneasily what God thought of it. Lennon's song asks us to 'imagine no possessions' 'no heaven, hell, or religion' and 'no country.' Wow- think they'd like to get what they just prayed for? I wouldn't...
Prayed together and let it go. We trust in Him, that's what we have to focus on. Other people will do what they choose.
At least the weather was fairly nice.
