ON WE GO! – January 2, 2019
Submitted on January 2, 2019
I hope that everyone has enjoyed a wonderful Christmas, and that your joy included attending Christmas Eve and other worship services that are always among the most meaningful ones of the year. Carolyn and I were thrilled to be able to worship with our children on a couple of occasions during the holiday.
We also shared the happiness of giving Christmas presents. Interestingly, the ‘theme’ that the family pursued for me this year was ‘orange’ --- imagine that! I was given orange peanut butter crackers, a bag of Cheez-It crackers, several Reese’s peanut butter cups, orange marmalade, and even an orange flashlight! While orange has its particular appeal, as with most gifts, it is the ‘newness’ that causes the joy. On that note, let your mind race for a moment with thoughts of this New Year, and with anticipation of the successes and joys that this year can bring. Happy New Year, everyone!
