Recipe for a Happy New Year. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous
Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time. Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.
Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution. Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.
Thank you for being such a blessing in my life. Let us continue to bless each other in 2010. Lots of Love and Hugs Pet.

- Because He leads us through the blood we stand boldly in His righteousness.
- Because He leads us through the blood, we don't fear losing our redemption.
- Because He leads us through the blood, we know the work is complete in us.
- Because He leads us through the blood, Satan has no authority over us.
- Because He leads us through the blood, we have salvation, healing, and restoration.
Experience joy in your journey...
No one knows what awaits just around the next bend in the road, but we can rest in knowing who is lading us along. We have peace knowing that we have been lead through the blood, by His grace, and no circumstance can change that.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

I know not why so many props have gently been removed, but I do know through every loss His arms unfailing proved. I have no reason, none at all, to doubt His Precious Word; though all I loved be swept away, His voice would still be heard above the storm, and as I lift my tear filled eyes to Him, The Great Creator, Lord of all He whispers "Peace," within.
Read: Mark 4:36-41
Quietness amid the dash of the storm. We sail the water with Him as we reach the center most portion., far from land and in the dark of the midnight, a sudden storm sweeps down. All earth and hell sweeps down against us. Each billow threatens to overwhelm our very being. Then He arises from sleep and rebukes the wins and the waves. His hand becomes an order to cease to the raging tempests surrounding us. His voice alone is heard above the howling wind, "Peace, be still." Listen for that voice. Can you hear it? Once you hear those words, there is an instant calm.
