Ringing in the New Year ~

The way we typically ring in the New Year. Home with our kids, yummy food, enjoying the family. Love it! We made our own Chinese food tonight and I tried a new recipe . . . . Cocoa Cake. Sooooo good!
"Instead of making a New Year's resolution, Consider committing to a Biblical solution, your promises are easily broken, empty words, though earnestly spoken. But God's Word transforms the soul, By His Holy Spirit making you whole. As you spend time alone with Him, He will change you from within." M.F.

Useful Wall Art

My New Closet

My hubby "built" me a new closet in our now spare bedroom! I feel very spoiled, but it is so nice to be able to have everything in it's place! I can now go in pick out my clothes, find my shoes (without searching for that missing second shoe!) I can be organized and fussy and keep my things color coded and neat. :) He built me a frame for my jewelry as well, I will take a picture of that and post it later. It's a place where I can hang all of my necklaces and easily see the perfect one for the outfit I am wearing.

He Alone is My Rock and My Salvation ~

Burdened above measure and strength, Hard Pressed, perplexed, persecuted, struck down . . . . .

Do not be crushed ~ do not despair ~ I won't be forsaken ~ I will not be destroyed.

Do not focus on the seen things that are temporary ~ only the unseen and eternal ~

He will work out everything for the good of those that love Him ~
