Stepping into a New Year.....

   Sweet little Gumdrop is pondering with me....stepping into a new year. It feels like standing on the edge of a cliff and trying not to fall. With a new year comes new possibilities; new challenges; new decisions. The not knowing what will come- the ups and downs ahead- it can be quite daunting.
   Before you get the notion I am a glass half empty person,  let me state-there are new joys in a new year; new friends, new events; new life. Opportunities to serve; to share; to lead.
   Here, at the beginning of it all, we stand...hesitating...taking a deep breath in prayer...before, in faith, stepping into a new year.

That's pretty much how I'm feeling in a nutshell. Nervous, yet excited to see what the Lord has in store for 2011. Even "good" years have their "downs." So, I am planning freshening up the house, setting a few personal goals, and letting the Lord show me (us) what's next. Only one day at a time. Trying to keep it all simple.

Nice post, Chele.
