It is the second day of the new year.
All of my Christmas decorations are up. There are dirty dishes in the sink. A rather large pile of dirty laundry is waiting. It has been quiet for half an hour, but the rustling of children is beginning.
It is the first Sunday of the new year. I can’t wait! A new year in which to worship, to study, to commune, to pray.
I am thanking the Lord for this day.
