Happy 2007 everyone. I know the big debate every year is whether or not we are supposed to “celebrate” New Years. The truth is, to me, this secular calendar is just a market of time. It doesn’t carry any religious weight. It used to carry much more weight. Today, not so much, I bet if you took a man on the street style poll most people wouldn’t even know it was tied to a religious thing.
Regardless, I like to think of New Years as a good time to reflect and take stock of what we have. Just like Thanksgiving, I feel that any day that people take it up in themselves to look around, be thankful, think about the previous year and look forward to the one ahead, can’t be that bad. If anything else it’s a good reminder to think back on a selected period of time (in this case 2006) and think if we accomplished things we set out to do, if we had a good year or a bad year and resolve to do our best to have an even better year.
With that I wish each and every one of you that this upcoming year should be good in all aspects of life. we should all be healthy, happy and successful in all areas, both physically and spiritual.
