I wish and pray a blessed new year to all, and to anyone who reads these words. It is a day at least in our nation that is a holiday, probably many getting over their hangovers. And a day to watch parades, like the Rose Bowl Parade and to catch a football game or two. Deb and I ushered in the new year playing Scrabble and listening to Bach and Handel on the piano (nice to have them here through the wonderful playing of Murray Perahia, on CD). We look forward to getting the Super Scrabble Deluxe Edition (with "Christmas money" largely). Probably the game Deb and I like to play together the most.
We had a wonderful visit to my folks in Ohio. And they loved our granddaughter Morgan. Yet no matter how well things go, I'm reminded again and again how in this fallen world we must proceed on in Jesus, seeking to follow our Lord daily in the resurrection life which is both our call and reality in Jesus. But it's nice to be able to kick back and relax some. I hope to be reading while I root for Michigan State and Penn State (my Buckeyes play on Monday, I think). And hopefully during that time Deb and I will get in another game or two of Scrabble.
I continue to enjoy The Bible Experience. It really is growing on me, and I'm going through the Bible again now, working through it daily, through that recording. We need to be in the word and let God in Jesus impact us in our lives, with each other and for the world.
Again, to all, a most blessed and joyous new year! May the Lord more and more have his rightful place in our lives as we then find our place and role to play in the ongoing Story.
