Happy New Year

Starting out this year with a new look for the blog and a new moto strip that hangs on the right side of the blog..."as for me and my blog, we will serve the Lord."

My spiritual resolution for this year is to be quiet and listen to what God tells me. Sometimes I think my own voice in my head is too loud. I know it has been in years past. I have a very soft speaking voice and many times people calling me on the phone ask to speak to my father. I'm going to use my own voice to remind me that I MUST listen to my heavenly father and do as He would have me do rather than trying to make up my own plan without even asking Him.

Heavenly father, this evening I am tired, but it's a good tired from keeping Carley Ann and Anna Claire last night. This morning making pancakes with Carley Ann's new play mixer was so much fun and I thank you for special times like that with my grandchildren. Thank you for this beautiful day and the wind outside that has blown all the leaves down the hill. Thank you for your mercy and constant love.

I pray today for my mother, brother and his children and their children that they be well and each of them find you to meet their special needs. Thank you for the hatching of Timmy's new chickens this morning. It's another reminder of new life beginnings for a new year.

Thank you for the gift of salvation and pray that if there be any sin in my life it be forgiven.

I praise your holy name and pray all these things in the name of your son, Jesus Christ.Amen

Hi Phyllis,
I like the new look of your blog, it's always fun to play around with the different features isn't it? Of course, I'm easily entertained and find enjoyment in the oddest things. It made me smile to learn we both had the same spiritual resolution. I think God is trying to tell us something don't you? It sounds like you had an enjoyable visit with your grandchildren...I don't know why but it brought to mind a book from when my daughter was little that we use to have so much fun with. It's titled "The Tea Party Book" by Lucille Recht Penner. It's a great book for quality time ideas (and creating memorable moments), our favorite was the Teddy Bear Tea Party. Well thanks for dropping by for a "visit"...keep me posted on your resolution, it might be fun to see how we each turn our ear to God.

Word of the day.
