2010 came and is gone. It'll be the same with us on earth, then we meet the Lord in person. How we love him in this life determines our eternal destiny. The encounter with him after this life will be strictly one-on-one with no other souls around being able to help or defend you in any way. Therefore, don't blow your chance.
(This may be a message on the grim side for a new year, but I think that it's a lot more meaningful than saying Happy New Year.)
