New Year’s Refusals – Wednesday

“…each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment… ” – Hebrews 9:27 Humanity has invented dozens of outlandish scenarios to make itself feel better about death.

New Year’s Refusal – Tuesday

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  – Psalm 90:12 A single tear slid down leathery folds of skin. “Fool!” the old man rasped. “I’ve been a fool. First I was a young fool, thinking I had plenty of time. Then I was a middle-aged fool, thinking I was…
