It is quite a night.
I just got word from my friend Susan that she has a new grandson. Born on New Year's Eve.
And my niece Hannah is marrying her longtime love Mike tonight in Connecticutt.
And I left Camp Christian where 60 plus young people will be enjoying a retreat this weekend and "prayer around the world." And I am sure a celebration tonight.
And Lisa Baluk is at Kobacker in hospice care tonight. She told me that she sees angels in the room and soon she will be leaving us.
And in an hour I go to church for a new year's eve party. Alyce and Reagan, my 8 year old granddaughters are coming for the party and spending the night.
And at 11:30 will will have a watch night service and at midnight I hope to be having communion. Bringing in a new year in the best way I know how to.
Happy new year - to the babies who are coming in to the world and the saints who are leaving and to all of us as we play and pray and embrace life.
Happy New Year!
