Theories prevail that we are not actually at the turning point of a new year. This thought is that a new year doesn't begin in the dead of Winter, but rather sometime in Spring when nature blooms. However, according to our calendar (right or wrong) this is seen as a new beginning throughout most of the world. So I'd like to take this space to offer blessings to each of you in the year ahead.
I know I haven't blogged much in the past month. There's no particular reason for that, either (lol). But I've been around and have still been enjoying, learning from and even commenting on some of your blogs. I so appreciate all of you. Your blogs challenge me, amuse me, bless me, edify me and give me an opportunity to get to know some downright awesome people all over the world.
I pray that all of you are able to put aside all of the worries and disappointments of 2007...that you are able to grow from your lessons in this past year and that you hold dear all of the good memories you created and participated in in this past year. May 2008 be a year of positive change, intense growth, expanded knowledge, gracious teaching and the year that you seek the Father as never before. May you and yours know His goodness, grace, mercy, love and favor all of 2008 and beyond.
I appreciate each and every one of you!
Have the happiest of new years,
