I woke up this morning thinking, the only thing that is different is the hands of the clock moved and suddenly – everything is different – 2007.

I remember when I was in 6th grade, sitting in the back of history class and wondering how old I’d be in the year 2000. As usual, I used my fingers to count it out (my mathematical challenges go way back) and realizing I’d be 45 in 2000, I’d be dead by then for sure!

Suddenly here I am in 2007 and thinking how young I am and how much more of life there is to live. I am so thankful to the Lord for all He has done in my life – especially this past year – and thankful that He is the one leading into the coming year. I wonder how people survive without a relationship with God. Isn’t it awesome as we consider, the creator of the universe (who made such an amazing universe) is intimately concerned with the likes of us, involved in our lives, we matter, I matter, you matter!?!

Blessed 2007!
