New Year’s Eve

Tonight’s December thirty-first, / Something is about to burst. . . (Ogden Nash, 20th-century poet of light verse)

“. . ./ The clock is crouching, dark and small, / Like a time bomb in the hall./ Hark, it’s midnight, children dear./ Duck! Here comes another year!” We really don’t have to be reminded that a New Year is about to dawn. It’s inevitable. Unlike children who may not have experienced as many New Years as we adults have, we should help them anticipate joyous new experiences.

The hopes of the godly result in happiness (Proverbs 10:28).
