Another year is gone...a new year awaits!

And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11

This scripture from the prophet Isaiah is my prayer for the year 2009.

Dear Lord,

May you guide me continually and satisfy YOUR desire in my life. Make my bones strong and make me able with your strong arms around me to withstand the trials and sorrows that surely will come......please water me like a garden as only You can with a spring of water, that living water that never fails!

Thank you for your Word that gives us guidance, comfort and shows us how to live. Thank you that it never changes, that You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Give me the ability to rejoice in all situations....knowing that this world is not my home. AMEN

Another year has passed quickly, they're passing a little too quickly these years are.

I started a long, month by month, post like I did last New Year , then I decided that was then and this is now and I don't really want to recap the entire year.

I'll just put it this way, there were times of great and overwhelming joy. There were days of great and overwhelming sorrow! But through it all, the Lord has brought us to another brand new year.

He has already written the post for next year. He has a plan. I trust Him.

Wow....what a prayer first off. Thank you Nancy for such honest and wise words.
Second....that Grady is delish! I want him! Isn't it funny how we want to devour them when they're that little and then when they're teens....well..we think of devouring them in many different ways?! Heehee.
Just kidding! I love my teens! Really!

God bless you all to the max this year. God is so mighty and I'm so glad He is on His throne!
I feel peace because of Him.

What wonderful words, and so true that He's been there in our future and we need to just relax and trust in His plan. Often easier said than done!

Lots of excitement going on in your world!
