"My numbers are few" (Genesis 34:30), but in any case in the words of our last hymn in our hymnal book:

May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
may the sun shine upon your face,
may the rain fall softly on your fields,
until we meet again
may God hold you
in the palm
of his hand." 

Blessed New Year to you, too, from Finland - a country "tiny like a pepper"!

I'll share this poem that someone from my church sent around tonight:

The Work of Christmas

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.

            -- Howard Thurman (author, philosopher, theologian, educator, and civil rights leader)

With these profound poems, I’m almost ashamed to share this one by Ogden Nash...

...almost Wink

Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!
