Right now, all I want to do is go to bed! I've not felt all that good this week, but had been getting better the past two days. But, over did it today, running around with my husband all day. Then, came home and went to clean the church. Had to get out all the Christmas decorations for Church tomorrow. And, I'm not as young as I used to be. I was wishing the whole time I had asked someone to come help! But, cleaning the Church is my job, so I grinned and bore it. But, I came home, tired to the bone.

As for ?ringing in the New Year?, it won't be happening here - party wise, that is. I will probably be sitting in my easy chair, computing, or watching the ball drop in Time Square. Didn't even make it that far last year. When the bed beckons, I?ll go tonight!

But, today is the end of a year, and tomorrow will bring in the new. It seems to come earlier and earlier each year. I think it's because, the older we get, time has a way of getting away from us. But, although the year seemed shorter, and we are about to embark on another one, I thank the Lord for every minute and every day. Each day is a blessing from above. We aren't assured another day, not even another breath, so I count it a privilege to . . .

We aren't assured another day, not even another breath, so I count it a privilege to be alive in this day and age - expecting to ?ring in another year?. I expect great things to happen in 2006. As one prediction going around says, "God will save the lost." What a wonderful truth! No matter how the days come or go, or what year it is, as long as there is an earth filled with people, God will be wooing their hearts, wanting them to turn from their sin and serve Him.

Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
