Well, everything around my place is getting back to normal. My daughter and her family are back in Alabama. Friends are back to work, and my routine is now back in place. I'm back to that same ole same-o.Back to normal...... peace and quiet. I say QUIET is sometimes overrated. Sigh......and after all the conversations with my grandchildren,nieces and nephews, all the chuckling over their innocent comments.....normal just ain't interesting at AWWWWLLLLLLL! (Kimmi..I miss you and yours so much already! )
I waited too late to post family pictures of our Christmas gatherings, so I guess I just won't.
I'll just focus on the new year 2011.
Most of us look at the year 2010 ,remembering the good and the bad of the year. My brother preached a message titled "Remember" tonight. It was very timely, and food for thought.It ended beautifully with my brother reminding us that with repentence God will remember our sin no more!How beautiful. Then I started remembering some of the promises left to us in the Holy Bible,which subsequently led to this song playing in my head. We seniors should remember when this song was a gospel hit. I think the Happy Goodmans sang it.
Looking for a city, where we'll never die,
There the sainted millions, never say good-by,
There we'll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too,
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew.
Signs of the times are everywhere.I love the end of one year and the ushering in of another. Milestones remembered and times for new starts. If you don't really know Jesus like you want to know Him, why not make this the year that you find that place with Him? We can never get too close to Jesus! My motto this year is going to be "Preparing for Heaven in 2011".Friends, I am looking for that place. I want to go there,don't you?
