Well not exactly....I've been doing this for a while...65 times. Funny how a "New Year" draws us to the possibilities...to the wonder of what could happen this year.
My past is certainly a big part of me....it is a lot of who I am. The work that God has done for me, the work that he has done in me, the work that he has given me to do by his grace and power, the power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is who I am right now.
That is where today begins....praise God, this life is not about me but about my Creator God, my Redeemer, my Savior, my all in all.
Last year I chose a word for the year. Well, mine was actually a phrase, "His Presence" (click and you can read it also). I saw progress...God enabled me to see him at work each day as his ever abundant grace came in gifts of beauty, quietness, fires, friends, opportunities to encourage or be encouraged, of just knowing that he is here with me every single day.
And for friends.....such wonderful friends!!!
