I don’t really like New Year’s Eve. It just reminds me that the holiday season is winding down, and I hate that. It’s the “most wonderful time of the year,” after all! But we have developed one tradition that I do actually like–we always watch Apollo 13 on New Year’s Eve.
That story always reminds me of how very small I am, compared to the vastness of the universe, and especially compared to God. And I think that’s a good way to end one year, and begin another–remembering just how big God is, and how much He loves us, even though we are so very small in comparison.
That’s one part of New Year’s that even I can get on board with!
