Well 2016 was a heck of a year. The elections primary and general were just plain weird. I was a #never Hillary and #never Trump voter. Our ruling class has descended to the bottom of the sewer.
Along with our culture.
But it is over. And Christians know to not put our trust in princes.
Christian hope, however, is not souped up optimism. We will see what a Trump presidency brings.
I doubt that 2017 will make it easier to be a Christian. It is probably going to get rougher.
But the last few months of 2016 have been rough going for me and my family–especially Mom. Dad literally dropped dead on July 4th at am in my house (he and Mom came to live with us in September of 2015). It is my first experience of grief. I had no idea.
I had promised Dad, just before he passed on, that I would start up this blog again. The re launch was supposed to be early July. I just couldn’t.
But my favorite Deacon made me promise that I would begin today. So here I am.
A blessed Christmas and New Year to all.
