As 2010 winds down in the South Texas hinterland, I wish all of you a very Blessed 2011. I leave you with the words of tomorrow's first reading from the Book of Numbers:
 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:  Say to Aaron and his sons: Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, and you shall say to them:  The Lord bless thee, and keep thee.  The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee.  The Lord turn his countenance to thee, and give thee peace.  And they shall invoke my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
