Reminiscing & 2013

My sisters and I had a wonderful morning antique shopping with a sweet friend that we haven't seen in a while.  For lunch, we tried a new restaurant, whose food was delicious.  Family-owned cafes are the best!

Card Book
When we returned home, I took a stroll down Memory Lane.  Over the years for as long as I can remember, I've collected cards that I've received - b-day, Christmas, etc.  I have a whole drawer-full of them!  The idea was to organize them for a new project I'd like to do (see right).  As I skimmed through each card, putting them in their rightful piles, I read various little notes of well-wishing, thank-yous, and letters.  Several were from friends I haven't seen in a couple years, and others from a cousin now off at college in another state.  It was pleasant to re-read the different handwriting and sweet encouragement from childhood friends, ladies in the church, and family.  I gotta tell you, I feel so LOVED.

And BLESSED.  I have a family that loves me (at least I hope they do... they sure put up with all my faults, bad attitudes, spoiled acts, etc.).  =D  Ha, I'm just kidding, I know they do!  Right?  *eyes shift, looks at mother*

Me:  "Ma? do you love me??"
Mama:  "What?  Ye-e-sss..."
Me:  *beams* "See! I told you so!!"

I am BLESSED.  I have a roof over my head, clothing for all seasons, and a warm bed.  Hmm... this could be the start of a new poem!  *ahem*

Moving on...

Now, we find ourselves at the end of the year 2012 A.D.

I don't make resolutions for fear of not keeping my promises, but I do try to set goals of what I wish to change, how I need to mature, and what I desire to be this time next year.

As we face this new year, never forget what a great God we serve.  No matter what comes, He is in control.  We can rest safely in this assurance.

No fear of the future!

Happy New Year!

Blessings,
Sarah

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
