gOoDbYe 2011

dontcha just love new beginnings???
i do...

tonight is the last night of 2011
we have been through so much this year...

we have moved to a new community
our children have started public school for the first time in four years
we bought a golf cart
we have truly slowed down
we are beginning to savor life a bit

god is so good
he is...
forever faithful
always soooo patient
with us

i am so grateful that he is all of those things
where would I be without him
he is the creator of new beginnings

how lucky we are
he created 
a new minute
a new hour
a new day

none of us is promised anything
we only have this moment
embrace it
cherish it
live it

but this evening, i am looking forward to a new year
i want to take some of the good things from 2011
i want to leave some of the not so good things in 2011
i want to make some improvements in 2012

thank you god for new beginnings

may he bless and keep you thoughout 2012

Isaiah 43:18-19
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
