A new year is here

Now that it is almost 3 weeks into the new year, I want to tell you all “Happy New Year”. It has been too long since I wrote on here. That’s what happens when the holidays come. My father-in-law has a word for the season from October-December: “Hallothankmas”. Ours was a lovely season with time with family and friends. My favorite moment? All of our  “kids” together in the same place for a few hours! It happened twice  – once on Christmas Eve, and once a few days later, in an early anniversary celebration for Chaz and me.

On January 3 we celebrated 30 years of marriage. Wow! I’m not sure where the time went.   (Flashback: go here to see our very first blog entry, on our 18th anniversary)  As I think back, it has been a full rich adventure, with lots of ups and downs. I know those of you reading can relate to that. I would not want to go back to any particular time. I am satisfied to be right where we are, serving God here in Kalamazoo on several fronts. We do our work with Wycliffe Bible Translators from our home offices, each with a separate spot in our rental townhouse facing a busy Kalamazoo street. We have involvement with our church and our community, both for service and for enjoyment. Usually the two intersect. We shall see what the new year brings, especially after tomorrow, when our new President is sworn in. No matter what your opinion of him, he certainly needs our prayers!
