Last Sunday was Christmas Day, and I should have wished you
all a happy and blessed Christmas. But in the focus of Christmas and Ann
spending the day with the heaves, I simply forgot to blog! But it’s not too
late to wish you all that I would want for myself for the New Year.
I can’t wish you this on New Year’s Day, as this year we don’t have
one! We fly east overnight on New Year’s Eve and land in New Zealand on January
2nd. So this early wish will take us to the following Sunday, when I hope to
return to a regular schedule.
If there is one wish that all would concur in—except those
who are determined to destroy it—is peace and security to raise our families. If
2012 is anything like 2011, many will have their lives disrupted by war, brutality
But in Canada, this wish will come true for many of us this
coming year, if we ourselves don’t destabilize it with our own anger and addictions.
Too often, we are our own worst enemy, sometimes unwittingly and often
unwillingly creating our own difficulties.
While I am glad of the great resources our country offers
for those times, for me the first and final resort is to seek the Creator Himself
for answers. Even if the answer is still uncertain, I can find peace in the
storm, and a confidence He will take me through.
It is this assurance about life that I wish for you this New
Year, and for life
