Happiest New Year wishes to you and yours! I pray that this year will bring you closer to our Lord, to those you love and to the goals you hold most dearly.

Happy New Year 2017 Haiku Poems
Happy New Year to
you and yours! I hope that you
have your best year yet! 

May you always feel
treasured, loved, blessed and sure of 
God's great love for you

I'm still praying for direction and for the first time in ages, have no concrete plan for the year ahead. Maybe that's what God is telling me. Be still and listen. Be more open to His spontaneous direction. I don't know for sure. But I do know He loves me and He loves you! May He bless you beyond your wildest dreams!

Merry Christmas! And an Update

Merriest Christmas wishes from my home and heart to yours! I love celebrating the birth of our Savior, the greatest gift of all time! May the joy of knowing him fill your heart with love and peace!

You may have noticed that I've been on a long break from the actual blog but I'm still active on the blog's Facebook page if you'd like to catch up there. I also occasionally post to Instagram.

As we close out 2016, I'm prayerfully considering my path for 2017. There may be some big changes! Regardless of where God leads me, I hope and pray that you are happy, healthy and walking in peace with our Lord. May God bless you and those you love!
