I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling really hopeful about the New Year. In December I was felt weighed down by something, but am not entirely sure what it was. One member of the church suggested it was grief. After all, last year at that time I had three funerals. Two of which were of well-loved members. Those things take a toll.
But when I woke up on January 1, the heaviness was gone. I started planning for this coming year and began to feel optimistic about my life, the church, the world – everything.
I’m not sure if it’s wishful thinking, or a sharpened realization of what God is doing in the world, but I feel like 2007 is going to be a watershed year in my life.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
