Today in the Sherman home, we will, God willing, have a relaxing day celebrating the 8th Day of Christmas / the New Year with the Annual “Winter Classic” Hockey game, eating Chinese food, taking a brisk walk with Sherlock, and, of course watching the college football playoffs (Go Buckeyes!). With all of the fun New Year’s day events, I think it most appropriate as a follower of Jesus to commit 2015 to grow in the Wisdom of the Lord. This year in Morning & Evening Prayer I will spend time in the Wisdom Literature (Ecclesiastes, Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of Solomon) in order to grow in Wisdom. As always, the ways of the Lord, are not the ways of the world; but as Proverbs tells us:
 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV)
May your 2015 be filled with great trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who came to earth as an infant, so that he could secure your salvation and give you abundant life in the present with great Wisdom day by day!
Merry Christmas and a most Happy 2015!
