Wishes......

The new year has already inspired me....... my first piece of work for January is "Wishes".....

New Year's Prayer.....


Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43:19-21 (NKJV)

Part of saying goodbye to an old year is looking forward to the new year that is ushering in...

What shall I look forward to or what will I change, what can I do to make this a better year? These are often the same questions I ask of myself every new year that is ushered in. Do I make New Year resolutions? No, because I usually fail to keep them....but this year I have decided to take a different approach.....

These are the thoughts I am going to change into prayers....

Heavenly Father I pray that......

I will become healthier because I am going to change the things that I can, eat better, sleep more, enjoy life......not endure stress...

Try to spend time with my loved ones and my family, let my children know how much I love them and how proud I am of them..... open my arms and my heart wider to include my darling niece and her family and help them get through the moments of sadness when we all miss my sister the most....

Love my grandchildren and be there for them as they learn and grow and face the challenges that life offers.

Love my husband and honor him, be his friend and encourage him to enjoy his retirement and look forward to spending our golden years in love......

Visit and connect more with my father who is in his eighties ......

Love my brothers who hate me and can not offer any reason why......love them unconditionally and leave the rest to God.....

Connect with my sisters and their families, we really do a network of love between us.......

Spend time with myself, either in creating or learning, or praying....... (Does God know about blogging, cause I have to add it)........

Amen,

Mags

Goodbye Old......

Hello new.......
Wishing all my blog friends and family, a very bright and "Happy New Year"......

Thank you to all of you who have shown me such love and kindness, supported me and lifted me up when I was down. Your comments and lovely words of hope, your prayers and your never ending faith has truly blessed me, especially during the times that I really needed a friend.
You may not know it but you were always there, just when I needed you the most.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:27 NIV
