Not only is “Well, I’m back,” the best final line of any book ever (you’ll have won my deep respect if you know the book), it is my official declaration that I am back in the blogosphere. The duration and frequency of my visits is yet to be determined, but I was pleasantly surprised by the encouragement I received from a number of you, over Christmas break, to blog on. What can I say… I aim to please.
Well, there is hardly a better way to (re-)begin than with a psalm:
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
you cover them him favor as with a shield” (Psa 5:11-12).
