Fittingly enough, tomorrow begins the new year in the liturgy.

I have received so many of God's blessings this year- gifts and talents, family and good friends, prosperity and success, grace and direction, growth and love. As the days get shorter, and the fallen leaves crumble beneath my feet, it is good to remember these things.

I've known for some time that I've been losing Alice. Now I have lost her. It would be improper for me to say much more here.

God is still good. And this minor drama has meaning, because it takes place in the great drama that is the redemption of the world. By the grace of God, there is joy even in suffering.
