Hello 2015

My mind is kind of swirling in a 100 different directions.

Not sure that I am ready for 2015.

The years pass so quickly.

I'm not a spring chicken any more. 

The freshness of the air outside takes my breath away.
Where do I begin.

One word
One thing
One change


Out with the old
in with the New.

I want things to be different in 2015.
I just can't put my finger on what I need to be different.

Some seem to have life figured out
I seem to be
Always searching....

Guess I'll walk one day at a time.

my days with the one who made me.

I am going to read a chapter at a time in the New Testament
I might chew on it for a day or
read it over and over again through the week.
The goal is to get it off the page and into me.

I'll see where God leads me.

Sometimes Beginning is the hardest part for me.

Sometimes I am challenged to persevere through the middle.

Born Sept. 1958- 

They say it is the dash that really matters.

This is what I'm hoping, 
that my dash will be more intentional this year. 

Whatever the days of 2015 bring....
I am thankful I can trust 
God cares about the minutes of my days.

I belong to Him
He will get me where I need to go.
Through the Holy Spirit, Christ is present in
the life of every believer.

He knows my needs and
He has the ability to help.

Happy New Year.
May God Add His Richest Blessing
