New Year's Wishes
Again, I don't have a card or project to share with you today, but this being New Year's Eve, I wanted to pop in for a few minutes.
I've noticed a lot of different people commenting on Face Book that they are ready for 2013 to be over. This wasn't particularly a good year for many, so they look foward to the new year with hope that 2014 will be a better year. While 2013 wasn't exactly one of MY most favorite years, I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to experience it. (When one passes the mid-point of the sixth decade of life, nothing is taken for granted - smile.) I hope and pray that I have learned and grown from the different experience the year brought me.
We all know we cannot undo the years past, and we recognize we cannot always control events of years to come. However, each New Year's Eve, we all look forward to the possibility that the new year will hold wonderful things for all of us. It is with that hope that I wish each of you a very happy 2014. May the year hold many blessings, surprises, love and goodness for all of you, and may you have the ability to see and receive all regardless of the form they take.
As the Psalmist reminds us:
"Shout to the Lord all the earth;
break out in praise and sing for joy."
