Today commences another trip around the sun, which will take an approximate twelve trips of the moon around our planet and an approximate 362 rotations of the Earth, and we’re hoping the next leg of the journey will go more smoothly. We’re faithful that at least warmer days will come along the way, although somewhat bitter that colder days will eventually come after that, and trust that God will do His part to keep that going.
Down here on Earth, where our fellow human beings have some say about things, we’re still hopeful. There’s still plenty of discouraging news even in such a slow news cycle and upward stock cycle as this, but it’s best ignored for another day. Today is best spent spent in respite with family and friends, and rooting for college football teams — in our family’s case that means Oklahoma University in the semi-finals of the championship tournament — and gearing up for another trip around the Sun.
In any case, even you’re a University of Georgia fan, we wish you all a Happy New Year
