How will I usher out 2010 and welcome in 2011? About the same as Ron. To me, one day is just like another, no matter what the calendar might say. More than likely, I’ll be up composing my next article for my blog, either in my mind or on paper.
Pray that our country’s moral and spiritual values will improve in 2011 due to the teaching of the saving gospel of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16), and that brethren be “steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord”: http://www.just1word.com/bible/verse/1-corinthians_15:58?version=kjv

I am only one, but still, I am one. I cannot do everything but I can do something. And, because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do what I can.
Edward Everett Hale, American clergyman and writer (1822-1909)
