No 2014 Review...Pushing on to 2015

I know that it is normally a good thing to look back; to check your progress.
I think I'm going to forego the 2014 year in review and just say that it was a good one.

Sure, it had some not so great moments, but all-in-all it was a pretty good year.

But it is in the past--which is no place to dwell.
There is only today and tomorrow and then it is 2015!

I'm not big on the New Year's resolutions but I do like to keep a few goals in mind and I am really looking forward to this retirement gig.

I guess the biggest thing on the "to do list" for 2015 is to figure out what I'm going to be doing ministry wise. I have a couple of conferences and a couple of revivals already scheduled for the winter and early spring. I'd like to do more but I really don't know if that's where I'm going to be spending my ministry time. I'm thinking that an in home Bible study or perhaps a coffee shop Bible study is something that could happen in the coming year. I'm still trying to figure that all out.

I have the "Drugs, Strangers and other Dangers" magic program to market to schools and kids camps. I am looking forward to finally spending time on that and hope to be performing it this spring. Getting my "magic room" set up will be an early retirement project.
I also have a few new magic effects that I'd like to get into a show. Practice, practice, practice!

There is much more to look forward to in the coming year, but I still have that work gig to worry about for a few more days. It is calling me right now! Eighteen more actual days of ATC work! I think I can handle that.

As for 2014, finish well, my friends!
Finish well.

It's pretty easy to be a great guy in the virtual world, Angel.
In real life, it's a full time job in which I often fail miserably.
Thanks for your good wishes and kind words.

John, you have wonderful goals. I'm so glad you have ministry gigs in the works. You have mastered the ministry gig. When telling about God and His plans, you are spot on. I love hearing you spread His Word.

Thank you, Anonymous!
I leave the anonymous option open because I want to hear from readers even when they may feel inhibited about saying what they really want to say and would never respond if they have to be named.
Having said that, I also like to know who is reading and commenting.
Best wishes for a grand 2015!
