"God's Eye" photo by Shawn Hinkle


Well, today is the last day of 2008. I wonder what the next year holds. But this I do know:

John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

The next year will hold the birth of a grandchild. It may hold transitions for dear friends which will cause sadness. But, no matter what the economy or the president or my church does, God is. God is in the midst of it all. God was before it and will be after it. Holding onto God is like looking out to the horizon to stabilize yourself when you are afraid of heights. He is my Level Ground. He is my Anchor. He is my Security.
