It was freezing cold. I should have had a coat on. But I didn't. It was a spur of the moment thing. I just went out for some alone time.
I looked up. The clear black sky was full of starts. I felt so small and insignificant amongst this vast expanse. This universe out there ... somewhere.
Then in the distance. As if to remind me of the Almighty who made it all happen. I heard the church bells ringing. A rare sound indeed in these days of secularism. There is a church about a mile or so away from where I live and every so often, when the wind is blowing in the right direction, you can hear the bells faintly in the distance. It is a very old church which I have visited from time to time and sat there in silence. The sound of those bells in the freezing night air made me thank God in faithful gratitude.
A BLESSED NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
