It's been the New Year for awhile now, and I haven't said anything about it.
Which probably doesn't matter. Plenty of other people have had plenty to say.
(Sometimes when I go into a book store, it takes all the wind out of my sails on the "I-want-to-write-a-book" front. There are already so many books. Many are much better than anything I could ever write, and some are actually much worse. But the point is, does the world need any more books?)
But now that we are in the double digits of January, here are three things I would like to record.
1. My life Bible passage
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
2. My verse for 2015
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid.
3. My word for 2015
