Notes on the End of the Year
It is called the holiday season. November and December give us Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Then January contributes New Year’s Day.
We all know that life goes on with the regular things, but these special days fit into work, church, housework, sports, raising kids, and other activities.
And we are almost at the end of 2018. It has been a year full of big events and some things which seem small. It is the time of year when newspapers, magazines, and networks name their Top Stories of the Year. Of course, God may have a different view about what is important. It is better to see things from God’s view than man’s.
Those of us who serve at Glimpses, who are seeking to bring the best, clearest, most helpful Bible teaching and information to you, ask for your prayers as we launch into our second year of publication. We have had the assistance of many good writers and photographers. We are seeking to add additional contributors in 2019.
Be sure to check out the books we have available. They are all loaded with Scripture and help Christians understand the teachings of the Bible.
The place where we get ideas for articles and columns is God’s Word, and it will never run dry.
