New Year Coming


Hello dear friends, praying that you are all doing well. Can you believe that a new year is almost about to begin? Are you happy about that, or does it stress you? I pray it makes you happy to think of a new year, filled with many exciting adventures that God has waiting for you. Open your heart to all the opportunities that God will make availiable to you. Make every effort that you possibly can this coming year, to be a blessing. Bless others as God so often blesses you. Share smiles, love, laughter, happiness, and God with everyone you can. If you do feel stressed, instead of letting calgon take you away, get away to a quiet place with God, let Him be your stress reliever, and heart healer my friends. Be blessed.

Great post and so encouraging. I had just been thinking that I need to focus more on the many positive things that are going on in my life rather than the few negative things. I absolutely love coming to your blog!

Blessings!

Thank you for your reminder. I tend to get depressed this time of year because the decorations come down and my relatives put Jesus aside till Easter now. But I am going to be a blessing to them this year. I want them to see Jesus in me all year.

Hi, Denise, I just LOVE the shortybear dance! Too cute!!

I am THRILLED with the idea of having a whole new year FILLED with the Lord! I could just do the shortybear dance right now -- but my kids would look at me like I'm crazy!

Love you so much, my sweet friend.

Thank you, Denise for a beautiful reminder of what God has called us to do...bless others as He has blessed us. You are a perfect example of how to do this. You have truly been a blessing to me just in the short time that I've know you.

Love you!
