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!
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
