Happy New Years!
I hope your brand new year takes you on glorious adventures, full of fun and joy with many blessings on you and your family…and on your life!
This morning as I looked out on a brand new year, I thought of my Great Grandmother Anne Marie looking out the same kitchen window at the same view wondering how she felt on a brand new year here in the 1920’s.
Was she like me…did she wonder a bit with a tad bit of worry…but with a hopeful heart…did she embrace life here?
I thought of my Mom looking out the same kitchen window and wondering what the brand new year would mean to her and to her hubby and of course her ding-dong daughter as she became a teenager…did she smile or did she feel like time was speeding by too fast.
With every year that I live here, I appreciate my heritage, the memories…both sad and happy and I know but I know God has me in His hand.
We are not to spend time looking back on what was or what could have been…we are to move forward and onward, living each day one at a time…its hard to do, but when we let go of the past, life flows forward with good stuff…if we trust that it will…it does!
A new year brings a fair amount of creative wonderment of what we could do and what we will do…
I pray this year will be fruitful, with great blessings on our lives filled with joy.
If I begin to worry about whats ahead this new year I hear my favorite scripture…and God speaking to me saying, now remember cowgirl, you are to trust Me!
“For I know the plans I have for you “declares the Lord” plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future, then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Amen! I can attest that this is very very true!
May 2016 be a year of great blessings in your life…may it be filled with joy, laughter, hope always and love…may it be a year you will see your dreams come true!
HRCG and her gang are over and out for now but never for long:)
