Another year begins. What will this year bring? I hope good things, for all of us! Hope, one of the three cardinal virtues, along with Faith and Love, is a wonderful thing. Certain aspects of my faith are in question for me at the moment, but I still firmly believe in the power of Hope and Love. And after having experienced a close call with death recently, I have a renewed appreciation of the power of Faith, Hope and Love. I have a renewed appreciation of every precious moment of life, and of living it well.
And Beauty, yes, I believe in the power of Beauty. What is life without beauty. What is life without the beauty of nature, of art and literature and music and painting and poetry and sculpture and all the other things that touch our souls in the deepest ways, things that seem to have their ultimate origin in the loving creation of God. And for me, and for many of my readers, feminine beauty is one of the highest forms of beauty God has created. So, with my renewed appreciation of life, I will continue to celebrate all these things on this blog during the coming year.
Yes, Happy New Year!!!
