Happy New Year

Our party was very nice. There were 6 of us plus kids. I got to hold my God Child Anna...I am tempted to write her name Anne (with the e). If you know the books Anne of Green Gables you would understand why. Last year at New Years we didn't know Anna was on Gods radar. But it is amazing how God has things planned, and how a year can bring forth all kinds of stuff we never thought about. Yes good things, but also hard things. One of my new favorite verses in the Bible is Revelations 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. God is the creator and finisher. He can have the first word in a matter...and no matter how difficult things appear God has the last word. I think about this verse on the last day of 2010, and on the first day of 2011. In context John wrote that Jesus is coming soon. Verse 12 reads “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done." If you want focus then remember this truth. Jesus is coming very soon. Today is a great day to live as you should. It's a great day to build bridges and a great day to start a new. God has the power to create what is not there. He can give us dreams, and provide what we need to finish our dreams. I don't know what's going to happen in 2011 but I'm trusting God to initiate good things, and give us all we need to finish what He has started.
