I am looking forward to the new year regardless of Washington, DC, fiscal cliffs, bad politicians and other calamities that may await us. Some may call me naive but I can't help but to believe that everything is going to be alright. I've read the book of Job and my particular understanding of that book of the Bible is that-- even if everything is wrong--it's alright. Naive and simplistic too, I guess.
One thing is certain though. I confidently step into the new year--my sixtieth year--remembering a sermon by Rev. Fred Luter, Pastor of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church New Orleans, once entitled, "It May Be Over My Head But It's Under HIS Feet."
Blessings of peace and all that is good,
Ephesians 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet...
