January the first. Again. I'm not going to be making any resolutions, but I am going to try blog more consistently in the coming year. Twenty-ten wasn't a great year, so much of it seemed to be spent struggling just to stay in place, but I am going into this new year feeling optimistic.
I had hoped to put up a video from this year's Christmas pageant, but my wife taped the entire thing and its just too long to load up. I intend to cut out just a couple of minutes, but my efforts to date have been less than successful. Program compatibility problems, etc. I have a friend who'll do it, but his brother just died, so I'm not about to bother him with it right now.
At home here we've had a great success with our family altar. With my wife and I working different shifts, its not easy to schedule anything, but lately we've been very consistent and I feel we're laying a solid foundation.
I do intend to go forward with the Matthew study soon. I am actually doing another study right now. That's just like me. Start a million things and, hopefully, finish one or two. That's something else I need to work on this year.
And, of course, I will continue to post links to news items. Here's a couple from this weekend: A car bomb went off outside an Egyptian church today, killing 21, wounding dozens, and in Pakistan Islamist parties rallied to support blasphemy laws used to discriminate against religious minorities.
