Christmas vacation is over and school is back in session here in the sunny South. It's been a good week here, with a great New Year's Eve party on Monday, and a good time gathering with friends for dinner the next day. That ham was the best I've ever tasted! The decorations have been put away for another year, and things are getting back to what passes for normal around here. The students in Newtown are back in a different school. Continue to pray for them and all the families as there is still a lot for them to go through.
