Happy New Year

It's the end of another year that has gone by so quickly. As I reflect back over the past 12 months, one word comes to mind: thankful. Thankful for God's provision. Thankful for a loving family. Thankful for caring friends, a good job, a Godly church and a fun city.

Today, I meditate on this verse and these thoughts below:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it"

Isaiah 55:8-11 


"It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season-- like all the others seasons-- is a good time not only to tell stories of miracle,but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them."

Lemony Snicket, "The Lump of Coal" {via Real Simple}

Blessings to you in 2013!
