As the New Year approaches I think of the plight of our country. I think the hard times are just beginning. The President seems determined to turn us into a European economy and we all know how that will turn out. Businesses are afraid to hire because of low demand by consumers and the unknowns about regulations and taxes. Liberals just don't understand that taxes don't bring home more revenue if no one is working to pay them.
Here on the local agricultural front, many horse farms are going broke. The cost of feed is skyrocketing, largely due to the use of so much grain for green projects. They don't work but no one seems to care. DC is hell bent to force their way on us, just like 1984.
Yet despite all of this, the majesty of God is still seen in the beauty of the animals and woodlands surrounding me. It reminds me that God is always there, and he is just waiting for us to wake up and look to Him for guidance. Hopefully enough of us will wake up before it is too late.
Stay strong, Christians, and know that he is "The Way, The Truth and the Light."
And get those New Year's resolutions ready; you'll need them in two days. Also, don't forget the black eyed peas and cabbage.
