A Fresh Year.....

A fresh page and a fresh start that is what we have. I want a fresh start and a fresh me for 2008. I have things to improve and grow in. Like flowers, my life is always blooming and changing. I have to cultivate my mind, will and emotions, through prayer, Bible Study, reading books, talking to people, learning from my mistakes and being willing to listen. I don't make resolutions but I do want a year of change. I think this will be a good year filled with blessings and adventure. As with all gardens, there will be storms, weeds to pull, twigs, thorns and so much more. But with the help of my Lord, my family and my friends we will make this year count. I want to say by the end of 2008, I have accomplished greater and deeper things that impacted our lives and the lives of others for the better. I want my life to count. So Here goes.......come on 2008, let's see what new and wonderful things we can discover together.

i believe it is impossible to be a Christ-one and go through a year w/o change. wonderful to see your expectant heart...anticipation.
i think of the old hymn "It Is Well With My Soul" for some reason. that no matter what the year will bring you, as you continue in Jesus, you will be able to say "it is well with my soul."
