There is only Praise for this new year! There is FOUR NEW CELEBRATIONS taking place under our "family roof" in 2012 and we sing praises to the LORD!
Philippians 4:19I have grown to Love Family More because of the tragedy of separation. I have grown to learn the need for me to forgive more than I will ever understand. I have learned JESUS is all that is worthy of Love, regardless and with out expecting anything in return. I've learned the joy of receiving the gift of a Son-In-Love and many answered prayers of and for him, his parents, his sibling, and his grandparents over the course of twenty one years specifically! Knowing and believing he is answering the prayers of four others as well!
I've learned that absolute truth has high costs. 2011 has been amazing and hard. It was also realized due to sadness one year and heart the past two Christmases there were no letters/card/pictures taken and sent out so . . . This year it will be NEW YEARS CARDS to those I have current addresses for.
I have learned to say, "I am sorry, I was wrong, will you forgive me and I LOVE YOU much much more frequently!" and I have also learned the beauty of life and how short it really is. I have learned that the Lord is working on my heart more and more everyday. Although the lessons learned have been stretching, HE is continually teaching me to look for and pray for the good that there is in people. HE is their Savior, not me. So this new year of 2012 I just give him my life. I know that I am not perfect and have never claimed to be, I am a sinner in need of a Savior and that I can ALWAYS PRAY no matter what or who tries to dictates differently. For His is the KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords. He is the I AM. He is Jehovah Jirah. HE IS THE SAVIOR of the WORLD! I Believe in HIM and will continue to LOVE HIM, and FOLLOW HIM.
This is a NEW YEAR!
But MY HEART IS HIS and will continue to be HIS.
I still pray for you, your health and your futures. I will continue to pray for each and everyone of you because . . . I LOVE YOU and I WILL ALWAYS CARE! For my immediate loved ones ~ ALL IN COLORADO, ALL IN ILLINOIS, ALL IN ARIZONA, ALL IN IOWA, ALL IN MISSOURI (yes to OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY) I LOVE YOU!
May He be with everyone of YOU!
