Rev. Barbara Cawthorne Crafton of New York City has the right idea. This came from her “Almost Daily eMo” and boy did it hit home for me. And I posted it here earlier today – and forwarded it to my church choir. But then I took a look at the bottom of her e-mail and realized that this is copyrighted material DOH!!!!! So so sorry – As an actress, Rev. Crafton must know all too well the problems with others re-using her work. Although she is generous to a fault in terms of sharing her thoughts, prayers and ideas with others, I don’t want to take advantage of her generosity, and so I deleted the quote from this blog. If you want to read her thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions (and they are very good), please click on the link above:) and subscribe to her Almost Daily eMo. It’s worth reading.
The picture at the top is of a stained glass window from Virginia Theological Seminary. I like it because it reminds me of Psalm 150 (or 151 depending on whose Bible you’re reading, LOL).
Well, back at work – back to to-do lists and visits and hearings and grateful for work I love – and back to work on deleting the carbs and self-indulgence and starting out a New Year. Unfortunately, I am starting it with a broken partial plate, so it’s off to the dentist this afternoon. Hey, it’s one of those things one just has to take care of … and for today I can. Luckily, this week is fairly light as far as hearings go, so I’m going to get in some paperwork and visits. It feels good to be back in the saddle again…. with apologies to Gene Autry, LOL.
On TV in background: funeral of President Gerald R. Ford. Farewell and our prayers be with you, your family and our country. ‘Twould be nice to get back to the level of civility that prevailed in your day in politics – even after Watergate!
