Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone. As 2008 came to a close I thought about what I have been going through, the tumor I have on my spine, my husbands job being in jeopardy,the medical insurance, the economy, just all the uncertainties of this world. Then God reminded me of how certain I can be in HIM, my hope is in HIM. In my quite time this morning HE gave me a verse I will share with you.
Dear brothers and sisters whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy. When your faith is tested your endurance has a chance to grow. James 1:2-3.

I have started another blog titled "Simply Believing" just a blog for me to use to share what God is doing in my life that may be a comfort to someone. I would say that the number one resolution made for a New Year is weight loss and is probably the most broken as well. I do need to lose weight and I will try harder to do that but my number one resolution is to become closer and closer to my Savior to imitate HIM in a way that others will see Jesus when they look at me in whatever situation I am in. I invite you to visit this blog as it will hold me accountable to let others know what Jesus is doing in my life.


  1. Happy New Year! Thanks for sharing the verse that was put on your heart.

  2. It is hard to think of trials as joy but I have to say I think you are doing a FANTASTIC job of it! Hugs and prayers for you in the new year! :o)

  3. Happy New Year may the trials be more of a refining of our souls then a burden we must bare!

  4. I wish for you and your family a blessed new year, and remember He only gives us what we can bear. Hang in there my friend. I will be praying for you.

  5. Lovely to see you making such a bold witness my dear sister in Christ. May he uphold you in all your trials. Love Judy x

  6. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
