New Years in Baltimore

We made the trek to Baltimore for new years eve this year with Sarah, Karene, and Kidron. We had a great view of all three barges in the harbor that shot off the fireworks...right next to the Constellation (which was periodically shooting off one of its canons). Since all of the restaurants required reservations, which we didnt have, we found a Chinese takeout place and made a picnic of it, despite the dropping temperatures.

Who knows what 2008 will bring for us, for our families, for our country, for the world. Many will speculate and some will be right and some will be wrong. I think that wisdom would have us echo the words of Daniel:

"Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever,
For wisdom and power belong to Him.
He changes the times and the seasons;
He raises up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
(Daniel 2:20-22)

No matter the change that this new year brings, one constant will remain: our Lord and Creator, Savior King, Christ Jesus, God Most High.

--Beth Anne
