Well, here it is, 2003 and it seems like only a few weeks back when everyone was frightened of the Y2K bug. Three years passed in only a few short weeks. We did witness some awful things during that time though. Let us all pray that this year will bring many wonderful things as far as progress towards world peace, and progress in our efforts to spread God's word.
I do want to thank every one of you who subscribe to this ezine for your loyalty. I hope you will all resolve this year to try and convert at least one soul to Christ. And while you are resolving, resolve to find me another or two of good Christians who would enjoy receiving this feeble effort of mine. I would like to build up my subscriber base but only with those who want it.
I hope for all of you, good health and much happiness this coming year. I hope you get to feel a baby grasp your finger, I hope you get to smell a puppy's breath, see kittens run and startle one another, have a dog run to meet you each evening, when you come home from work, so overjoyed that he can hardly contain himself and I hope you see many beautiful sunrises. I hope you get to smell honeysuckles this next Spring and, if you live in the areas where they are, hear Whippoorwills calling each evening. I hope that whatever may be worrying you, turns out to be something wonderful. And I hope that you might get to hear a little girl say "I love you, Daddy (or Mama, which ever the case may be)"
And above all I pray that, if any of us fail to make it through this year, that we will have lived our lives so that we may meet in Glory, "...and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
