A New Year

Well, 2008 is here..... I am actually very excited about that. 2007 held many difficult things for my family to process and go through, and though it ended in a very amazing and awesome way and though we saw God's faithfulness throughout every circumstance, I am still happy to see 2007 end and 2008 start.

Many of the blogs I read have recently moved to the blogger site, so I decided maybe it was time I checked it out as well. In the past I have had a hard time keeping up with a blog and am not 100% certain I will maintain this one as well as I would like, but I will do my best.

We were wonderfully surprised on Christmas Day by the birth of our grandson. He was not expected to arrive for another 5 weeks, but I think God sent him to us on Christmas Day as a special message to me that God always hears our heart's cries and will answer in ways we never expect. So, as our house adjusts to having a new baby to tend to and snuggle with, I have also created a list of goals for 2008.

There are many things that I want/feel the need to accomplish, but seem to always get sidetracked, so this year, I am determined to work more diligently at setting goals and then breaking them down into monthly, weekly, and daily goals. Many times I have cried out to God asking for more time and I believe He replied with "be a better steward of the time I have given you". So that, above all, is my goal for 2008 - to be a better steward of the time I do have and make it count.

I believe that as I spend more time on the Potter's Wheel that Iwill be made more into a vessel that He can use to bless, encourage, and reach others with His message of hope and deliverance and that as I seek Him, all the goals I have in my life and the extra time that I tend to crave will be added to me just as His Word says.

So, Happy New Year blogging buddies and see ya soon!
