The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.

The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.

Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.

Langston Hughes

Holding a grudge/lack of forgiveness/resentment is like drinking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.

I really love the holidays. I'm a "moment" kind of guy, and there are so many sacred moments within the context of family. Okay, maybe not everyone's family. But at least in mine.

I cherish the time I have with my wife and kids, her family and my family.

I'm ready to turn the page into a new year, too. Renewal, rebirth, etc. So powerful, that life can spring forth in new forms with merely a turn of a calendar. A new season is coming to my ministry and my church, and I'm excited to see how it impacts the Kingdom of God.
