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.

Happy New Year, My Friends!

I want to take just a moment to say to all the netizens that I have met over the last few years (okay, 1 and 1/2 years) that I wish you the very best for the new year! That includes you, Leo and Rob, (I miss hearing from you both, but I trust you are both well) and you, Troyal. (I was never sure if that stood for Troy Al or T. Royal or, maybe, neither. Either way I enjoy your art.) And then there was Rhys, and the blog bloke, and Bobby G. I've learnt from all of you, though not as much as I should have. (What with such a short attention span.) You all produce some great sites.
Then there was the gracious Cergie, proving that all the French are not in the least bit what many Americans say about them. (Come to think of it, that's what the Internet has shown me. That people from all countries are, after all, just people the same as myself, with hopes and dreams.) And I shouldn't leave out Paulo, and Dave, and Elisabeth (Shame on you, Elisabeth. You didn't leave an address to touch base with you, after you left such a sweet comment. But at least you did comment. Thanks again.)
All in all many of you I consider friends who don't ask for money. (Perhaps that is the thing I like best about you.) Although the political and religious debates have also been interesting and challenging. You know who I mean, Mohamed Fadly. I wish you happiness and peace, my friend. And also to you, Scott, Rose, and C.F. All of you I call friends and I am blessed to know you all.
I know I have left out some names, but then you should write more often. That's okay. Time is short. It is almost time to begin again. May you all have more than enough. May you all be blessed in order to bless. May you all find all that you search for. May you all know the reason for your existence and use that existence to its utmost. May you all know the God of Grace, who gave us this time to start over.

Thank-you for your kind words for the new year - and I'm amazed how you keep up with all the traffic to your site. And I agree, this activity certainly gives another dimension to our life. I'm still pondering the pros and cons of it though.
