A brand New Year....

A brand new year is about to start

the choices I make will reflect my heart...


cars hurry by on busy streets

filled with people we may never meet...

running their errands, filling their days

rushing around in a thousand ways...


I wonder if they know who gave them this day

if so, will they choose what they do and say...


it's easy to get caught in the crazy pace

help me to be wise as I run this race....


I want to be what you want me to be

I need more of you....and much less of me...


As this new year begins, I bow my heart

and ask once again for your help as I start...


... I posted this a few months ago, but is still fits what I feel today as this New Year begins, so I've altered a few words ... here it is again, along with my prayer for the year ahead ... more listening... obedience... wisdom... obedience... faithfulness... growth... obedience... discipline... obedience... as the journey continues... 2010.... a brand New Year! A year still FILLED with God's promises for each one of us!

Sonja---

I love this!
For many years of my life I dreaded the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. I was afraid of 'what that new year might bring' and I wanted to hold on to what I already knew had come.

Now - this year especially - I am looking forward to 2010 and have adopted a little theme that I desire to live by in the coming year even more than ever...

JESUS ONLY in 2010!

Choosing JOY, Stephanie
