Welcome 2010!

Wow! the years fly by and before you know it, it is a new year. I think of all the promises or resolutions I have made over the years and how quickly they fade.

This year I have goals. Nothing great - just simply to take better care of myself both physically and spiritually. I would like to make a difference in someone's life this year. I want to make memories for my grandchildren. I want to be more faithful in writing in the grandchildren's
journals. It is painful to write but I can do a little each day. I want to spend more time in God's Word and have a better understanding. I want to spend time with my two Christian "partners", Pat and Mildred and learn from them. I want to spend time with my grandchildren, especially the older ones, encouraging them in their interests. I want each of my grandchildren to see Jesus in my life. If I can do all these things, it will be a good year.

Our Christmas time together as a family was wonderful - loud, fun, and crazy. The kids seemed pleased with their gifts and the "Cousins Productions" play was great. Only one person was missing - Joey. May be someday he will come back to us. He is in God's care. My niece got engaged and I pray this time she has planning her wedding will be a time of joy. She has always been special to me and I haven't even met her fiance. Her Mom thinks a lot of him. My prayer for them is they have "three" in their marriage and they can make it through the good times and the hard times.

May each one who reads this have a blessed New Year.
