So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

Open The Door!

The year ahead of us is like a door, beyond which is great opportunity. In the past many doors have been slammed in our faces. Some doors we simply did not know how to unlock. Many we were too afraid to open. Yet others we may have kicked in and then didn't know how to deal with whatever we found there. As a result many of us have become fearful or have given up.

What's the biggest door in your life? For many it is a financial door. For others it may be the door leading to their health. Or perhaps it is an emotional door. It could be a door that keeps you from having the relationships for which you have longed. Whatever it is most of us have a door that needs to be opened.

This new year open your door. It lies before you waiting. The God of the Universe has said: I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

What are we waiting for? Open your door and walk in. It holds your future.

Just now I am feeling that an important door might open for me. I feel over-awed by the challenge. I realise I have to take the risk that it might not open.

Wishing you the best for 2007 and may important doors open for you.

Rob, thank you for dropping by! Thank you for your good wishes. I'm am truly expecting great things of 2007. I suspect that this year will be challeging for all of us. If we are grounded in our beliefs, we will come to the end of this next year as better men. Even as happier men.

You say that an important door might open for you. You feel over-awed by the challenge. Allow me to encourage you, my friend. I sense that you have great talent and ability. You are obviously a deep thinker and have great sensitivity. I believe that you have much to offer in many areas. Whether the door is one of relationship or career or whatever. Be encouraged! You are up for it. Yes, it might not open, but what if it does? You might even be able to throw that door open yourself. You have admitted to being shy, but as one shy fellow to another, past behavior does not determine our future behavior. We are going on to better things.

Excuse me--I may have gotten excited for a moment there:)

I hope I don't seem silly or presumptuous, but I like you. I wish you the best in 2007, my new friend.

Thank you again. It amazes me how much people come to understand through blogging. Perhaps here we are more free to express our true selves than in everyday socialising.

I have spent most of my life being lonely. I recognise I need to change this.
At the moment I feel hopeful of an important relationship with a lovely and capable lady. It's all a bit nerve-wracking at the moment!
I feel so much better since I have started seeing her.

Good for you, Rob! Atta' boy. You deserve to have much happiness.

(On reflection, all people deserve to have happiness. It's ususally ourselves that get in the way of our happiness.)

It certainly can be nerve-wracking. It's stress, pure and simple, but this is the kind of stress that makes us want to keep on living.

I look forward to hearing new and energized reports from you in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Bye-bye for now.
