Sometimes less is more. This morning as light begins to dawn here in New York, I realize that in many places in the world the day is in full swing and people have already set intentions for this new year. The Book of Numbers offers me the opportunity to add my wishes for a blessed and happy new year in three brief statements that are, in my estimation, “as good as it gets.”
The Lord bless you and keep you! The Lord let His face shine upon you and be gracious to you! The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace! (NM 6)
May it be so for all of us!
