Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you. We've been busy the last 2 days visiting family. We finally had our trip to Grandma's house. It was nice, but not the same. I'm not gonna complain though. There's always next year.

As we've begun a new year, I've been thinking a lot about what it will hold. There are many changes I'd like to make in my life. Some of them seem a little scary. It's good to know that God holds me in the palm of His hand and knows and has ordered my days. Even if I stumble He always makes a way. When I look back through the years I see His handiwork in my life. I praise Him for His faithfulness and steadfast love.

My New Year's Eve was not the way I would have planned it, but still very nice. We had dinner with a friend, played games at the church, went "home" to my parents' and prayed the new year in. What a nice way to start a new year-seeking God's face. I've felt a real pull lately to spend more time doing precisely that.

Happy New Year! May you be blessed and prosper in all you set your hands to do. May the glory of the Lord shine upon you and may you come to know Him in a deeper way this year.
