i don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing - take your pick: in case you were disappointed by the way 2013 started out - take this opportunity to start over again. it's Chinese new year - so have a happy one! this is the year of the snake - not one of my faves - but marking the passing of time could be considered progress - or not... when i lived in Thailand it was really surreal - we had 3 new year celebrations a year - Western, Chinese and Thai. it really made you feel like time was flying. anyway - if you need an excuse to have a fresh start or a celebration - be my guest. if holidays get you down - forget i mentioned it!
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.
