Wednesday, January 01, 2014
For all the fireworks and pop bands and incipient hangovers, tomorrow will not be "a new year". It will be Wednesday, like most all previous Wednesdays. That it falls in This Year Of Our Lord 2014 is fairly meaningless. It is Wednesday. A day. A day that you can fill with the glorious or the ignoble; it is entirely up to you. It will be a "happy new year" if you so choose to live it as such, tomorrow, and all the fifty-one subsequent Wednesdays. And the Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays...all the following three hundred and sixty-four days. Each day, lived one day at a time, as a happy day, or a full day, or a creative day, or a good day.
This is the day the LORD has made. Let us rejoice, and be glad in it.
