At the beginning of a new year and the winding down of the old, I love to look back on where I’ve been. With a coating of frosty white on the surface of my garden, it’s hard to imagine that just three months ago I was harvesting cucumbers and green beans by the basket full and treating my grandson to brim full cups of tiny orange tomatoes that went “squirt” between his teeth. Nevertheless, here we are. A few of the things I thought I’d accomplish are completely untouched, but this is no surprise to God, and there have been plenty of surprises this year, unforeseen at the outset.
The new year will begin my sixth year blogging here at Living Our Days. This little writing home has been the gateway to some wonderful friendships and some exciting opportunities to teach and to write in places I would never have expected. Thank you for your faithfulness here in reading and sharing posts you’ve loved with your friends via word of mouth and social media.
And thanks be to God! Let’s join the psalmist in gratitude for what has been given and hope for what is ahead as 2019 comes to a close:
You crown the year with your bounty.” (Psalm 65:11)
I love that we are entering The Roaring Twenties!
What plans and goals are you praying about that will bring you roaring into the new year?
Blessings and Love to You,
