Who can explain Your wonderful plan to send us Your very best–Your own Son? And how grateful we are that You even design wonderful, unique plans for each of us as Your children. Read more

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas. I woke up a week before Christmas with a stiff neck that wouldn’t move in any direction, but was so grateful when it loosened up in time to fly to spend a week with family at Christmas. We missed the snow back home, but we enjoyed a white Christmas wherever we went the last three years at Christmas. So I can’t complain.

Most of all, I pray that the celebration of “CHRIST-mas” this year brought you closer in your relationships with Jesus, family, and others. It’s been such a joy to connect with so many of you through the last few years in this blog, and I look forward to another year of sharing encouragement from God’s heart and mine.

In case you missed some of my blogs last year, here is a list of my Top 10 Posts of 2012: Read more
