Happy New Year
New Year's Resolution #1 Exercise

New Year's Resolution #2 Be faithful to blogging

New Year's Resolution #3 Finish my memoir

That should take all of 2011 up for me!

As we all go back to work and "normal" life today, I give thanks to my friend Rev. Nancy Jo Kemper for pointing me to the poem below to launch us all into the new year.

The Work of Christmas
           By Dr. Howard Thurman

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
   To find the lost,
   To heal the broken,
   To feed the hungry,
   To release the prisoner,
   To rebuild the nations,
   To bring peace among brothers,
   To make music in the heart.
