I Guess It's a New Year Now

Happy New Year everyone! See, Jesus is making all things new. Allow Him to bless You this year. Pray for it. Seek Him earnestly. Do not give up no matter the trial that comes your way. If you do not give up, every promise that is given in the book of Revelation awaits you. Read it - again if you can't list all the promises verbatim from memory - you don't want to forget a single one!

I rang in the new year with Grandma and my parents. We rented a couple movies and played their new Wii. Yeah, that's right, my dad bought a Wii for him and my mom. It's something fun for them to do together. While I've had some exposure to the Wii (of course Marquis and Mr. Pukis each have one), I haven't had much time to master the controls. As far as video games go, I've become more of a spectator than a participant in recent years.

It has been fun to play the Wii sports games. Tennis is my favorite, then bowling, then golf, baseball and lastly boxing (can't get the controls to respond properly - annoying!). The first time through the fitness program, I scored a ripe 66 years old! After a couple days of practice, just today I scored a 20! Woo hoo, I just dropped 10 years (or 46 years from my horrible first test)! And here I was thinking I just turned 30.

And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Revelation 21:5-7 ESV
