As we prepare to begin 2008, thoughts turn to the brevity of life. Life, which we so dearly hang on to. Yet our grasp on life only truly begins to make sense when we let go and try to fathom the mystery of the God Who loved us unto death. We know and believe that we were made for greater things – and in this New Year, our “greatness” will lie in our living our ordinary daily lives extraordinarily well. In this, life makes sense. In the ordinary, God will make Himself known. Life will be lived to its fullest, because we will be living it with Him, in Him and for Him.
