Well I’m signing off for 2010. The remainder of the year will be spent with family and friends.
In case you missed it, I recently listed my favorite book reads of 2010. I love to hear about your own reading diet, so please tell us what books you read in 2010 in the comments of that post.
Speaking of year’s end, it reminds me of a delightful hymn penned by John Newton [Olney Hymns (1779), book 2, hymn 42]:
Now through another year,
Supported by his care,
We raise our Ebenezer here,
“The Lord has help’d thus far.”
Our lot in future years
Unable to foresee,
He kindly, to prevent our fears,
Says, “Leave it all to me.”
Yes, Lord, we wish to cast
Our cares upon thy breast!
Help us to praise thee for the past,
And trust thee for the rest.
That’s worth reading a few times.
I plan to return to blogging in time to celebrate the birth of J.R.R. Tolkien (Jan. 3, 1892). Until then enjoy this wonderful Christmas season and the celebration of the New Year!
Thanks for reading this meager blog!
