From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the LORD is to be praised!
There's nothing magical about a new year. The earth continues to spin on its axis, the sun rises and sets, bills arrive in the mail, I still have to cook dinner, and the dust under the beds, dirty dishes in the sink and overflowing hamper of dirty laundry by the washer didn't disappear.
Four days into 2013 looks just like the last three days of 2012 - more or less.
I wondered - how many of the tens of thousands of sunrises and sunsets has this woman of a certain age missed in this mist of a life I've been given?
