He who was seated on the throne said "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." Rev. 21:5
Growing up, my family had a saying that whatever you were doing on New Year's day, you would be doing for the rest of the year. Keeping that in mind, I would like you to be looking at something beautiful on New Years day. This is one of the prettiest trees I saw this year. I think the theme was New Orleans because it was very reminiscent of Mardi Gras. It may be too bright and tawdry for some, but I am rather like a crow, attracted to bright, shiny things. I will wait till tomorrow to post my New Year's eve happenings and my resolutions. Speaking of tomorrow, I don't know what all the fuss is about a New Year. To me, every morning is like a mini new year. A blank slate before us when we wake up. A chance to be thankful that we did wake up and can start anew. Over and over and over, all the days of our lives. Each one fresh and full of grace. Happy New Year!!!
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consummed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfullness." Lam 3:22,23
