Don’t feel bad if your New Year’s Eve plans do not meet up with your expectations. They never really do for most people. All the beautiful people get together in New York and Hollywood but they are no happier than you are if you watch an old movie and have a good bourbon or glass of wine or even a coke with lots of ice. What you want to remember is that the new year has started. Back on the last Sunday of November a new year began – Advent slipped in almost unnoticed. Your real life is not marked by clocks or balls dropping or calendars turning. Your real life is already in God’s hands. It was decided when Jesus spoke those words from the cross, “It is finished.” God always finishes what God starts.

Don’t you love what Jesus said,

Matthew 6:25-34 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”

Tomorrow is the Sabbath – a little Easter – a celebration of new life, new hope, and new expectations. No matter how late you stay out or stay up – make an appointment to pause and give thanks for the best hour of your week. There is a feast planned and the host will be waiting to offer you the best seat in the house.

Be Well..
