May the year 2012 ......

Photo by Shonda...

Hello my dears..
The sun is going down on another year that God has provided for us... We have known His love and His mercy everyday this past year.. For that I am thankful..

As I look forward to the year 2012 my mind dwells upon what my heart desires..

My main desire is that I will have a closer walk  with Him...

And that He will have first place in my heart and life.. 
I desire the same for our family.. That we will all grow in grace...

I desire to lead someone to Him in the new year..
I desire to be a witness of the good news.. That Christ saves and He satisfies the longing of our hearts..

I yearn to be the wife and mother that the Jesus desires me to be..

To be the friend that He would have me be...

And yes... to be the author of this blog that He desires...
Proclaiming His love in the little things..

The past year has had it's joys and it's sorrows ...
There has been excitement and there have been tears..
We have gained friends and lost loved ones..
We have had sunny days and we have had stormy ones..
But through it all  I have learned  to lean on Jesus and to trust  in Him...

So dear ladies and sweet mamas let us look forward with a glad heart to a year that God will  make our lives vessels of joy..
Turning our homes into havens of love for the dear family that God has blessed us with.. 
Whether it is just us empty nesters or sweet families or single parent homes let us pray for God's blessing of peace,  joy and love  over our homes for this coming year.. 

Peace in our homes and hearts that only comes from Him and joy for our families that is abundant and love for our husbands that is  blessed of the Lord.. 

Let all we do.. be to His glory..

Does that sound all right to you all? 

What does your heart desire for the new year?

Every New Years Eve since I have been a child I have wondered....

Is this the year that Jesus will return for His bride?
Do you wonder that, too?

Thanks so much dearies for stopping by and for leaving your lovely comments...

I will leave you with this  from Psalms 19..
The New Living Bible..

1.  The heavens proclaim the glory of God.  The skies display his craftsmanship.

2 Day after day they continue to speak;  night after night they make Him known.
 3. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.

4.  Yet their messages has gone throughtout the earth and their words to all the world..

So... as the sun rises onto a new year sweet friends...
This is my prayer....

verse 14...
May my spoken words and unspoken thoughts be pleasing even to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Love to you all ...

  8. Vs. 14 is the verse I pray to the Lord every morning when I first wake up. Before my feet hit the floor, I ask this of Him. These two areas seem to give me the most trouble. My mouth and my thoughts. I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless.

  9. Happy New Year Faye! Blessings, Shirlee

  14. I truly desire everything that you mentioned, my hearts says, "yes, me too!" God has blessed me with the chance to know you, I am so very grateful for that!
    Yes! My husband taught on "Rejoice that your name is written in the Lambs book of life". There are so many things that we get excited about, but behind it all, THAT is the #1 most important thing because Jesus could very well come back this year! And I MUST be ready to meet Him!
