As 2009 slips away – and a new decade arrives

Apparantly, its already 2010 in Australia ( or somewhere a long way away) – and I find it hard to believe a new decade is upon us. Ten years ago I was with a group of friends in the belfry of Sheepy Magna Church in Leicestershire as they rang in the new millenenium – and I rather over did the red wine afterwards – never again! Ten years on….. 2010. I shant be up any belfrys this year, just be quiet at home – I like to be looking out of the window when the new year slips in and listen to the few fireworks that leap about. So, to all paxtonvic readers I do wish you every good thing you hope for in 2010 – and so many thanks for supporting this blog since May.

The gate of The Year

By M. Louise Haskins

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:

“Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the unknown!”

And he replied:

“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.

That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”

So, I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night

And He led me toward the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.

So, heart, be still!

What need our little life,

Our human life, to know,

If God hath comprehension?

In all the dizzy strife

Of things both high and low

God hideth His intention.
