New Year's Day was filled with lots of excitement, plenty of grandchildren running around and enough food on the table to eliminate world hunger. Actually, it did eliminate my ravishing hunger, at least for the day.

I believe there should be a Congressional investigation into this rather
serious hoax being played on the American people. After all, if someone 
promises something to be new, and brand-new at that, it should be 
downright new. 

I think I go along with Solomon, the wisest man in the world, who said,
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is 
done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the 
sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV). 

This so-called "New Year," is simply the "Old Year" repackaged for the
unsuspecting. For some people it will take six months into the "New 
Year" before they realize this awesome truth. 

People make New Year's resolutions, which are simply the old resolutions
from the year before. Some of them go back decades. Nothing really 
changes. By the time February, which is the same February as last year, 
rolls around those new resolutions are tainted with some serious aging. 

But there is a greater than Solomon that I appealed to. He said, "And he
that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he 
said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful" (Revelation 
21:5 KJV). 

I will leave the creation of "new," to the one who knows how to make all
things new.
