Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and peaceful 2009!
We can't avoid it - time just keeps passing on as we spend our days doing whatever we do, and suddenly you're another year older! Today is my birthday and I can't understand just where the years went. I was a kid, then a teen, young adult, married, had children. They grew up and now I have four grandchildren! Where did the time go? I remember once when I was a young adult someone asking me what I wanted to do in my life and my response was "I wanted to live long enough to be a Grandma!" Voila! here it is, and I couldn't be happier! I felt then as I do now, the good purpose in life is to raise your children to be responsible adults, so that they will raise their children to be responsible adults, and the life cycle goes on.
I have a wonderful life and I have the Good Lord to thank for it. One thing I have learned in 2008 is that the world is not very different from the way it was in the Bible; many of the problems we face today are somewhat the same as then....and God has a plan for me (and you too, of course!) So I am going to spend a little of each day just listening; "Be still, and know that I am God".
Happy New Year, and may God Bless you!
