Two thousand and nine

I am thinking about a new year. My hopes create the image of a transparency. (I don't know the correct term for the piece of mylar that is used on the overhead projector.) My desire is that I will want to be transparently clean before Him, to get clean immediately when marked up. And I hope I will want to have that same transparency with others. Not artificial. Not insincere. Pure motives. Worldliness is wearisome. The scripture says that anything that is not of faith is sin. I want to please Him in 2009.

I bought a party sack of hats and noise makers thinking we'd celebrate with people on the 31st. I bought the sack, rather than the higher quality individuals because a lady was blowing, with her mouth, ALL the individual horns to see how they sounded. Well, we had no people around with whom to celebrate. Brian and I were in our home, reading, watching the news, and then praying around midnight. We didn't wear the hats. Friday we invited Kim's family and her visiting in-laws for a spur of the moment luncheon. We enjoyed playing with the hats, horns, and the blow-ey things that unroll into your face.

It looks like a fun, happy day-after-new-year's party!

I can't think of a better way to spend New Year's Eve than praying!
