It’s a New Year

…the old has passed away, behold, the new has come! So, out with the old, in with the new.

Those three little dots represent these words, Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he (she) is a new creation… That was one of the first Bible verses I memorized back in 1969 when all things became new for me. A new life, a fresh start; I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see.

It’s good for me to remember that conversion experience. I wonder how different my life would be if I had never owned up to believing in God, confessing my sinful nature, accepting forgiveness and, and, and…it seemed so silly at the time…asking Jesus into my heart. At least in the moment before, it seemed silly. Then, the instant the words were uttered, I’m still amazed, everything was new. You know what I’m talking about? Rebirth, renewal, regeneration.

Trivial in comparison, but this is about a new blog. I miss my old blog. So, to honor its memory, I will be true to the old blog’s subtitle “IN WRITING SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE, AND ALWAYS, SHORT IS SWEET.” With that, I close.
