Welcome to the year 2011 and; This is the day
the Lord has made; We will rejoice and
be glad in it.
( Psalm 118:24 *NKJV )
What do you think this day, or any day means to our
Heavenly Father? For the answer to that let us turn to the Bible
where it is written; But, beloved, do not forget this one
thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day.
( 2 Peter 3:8 )
It is also written; For a thousand years
in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past,
and like a watch in the night. ( Psalms 90:4 )
You see even though a thousand years is a very long, long time
to us, it isn't when compared to God's Eternal Existence.
Now when we think about it, we actually live one moment
at a time, not a day at a time, do we not? For none of us carry
a guarantee of the future, even if that future is only an hour or
two away. So try to do your best in the moments that you have
each day, remembering that a lot can be accomplished in only a
moment. Therefore cherish each day that God has given to you,

Now I would like to share the following poem with you, Pat,
and to wish you a Wonderful New Year filled with God's Love,
Hope and Faith. May God Richly Bless You Indeed in 2011.
A new year just beginning,
Each day a fresh, new start,
To fulfill your hopes
And pursue the dreams
Sustained within your heart.
Put God in charge;
He'll plant the seeds
Of affection, love and care.
Like a garden, your life will grow
With kindness flowering there.
And as you face the wonder
Of each day's mysteries,
You'll see God's hand
Unfolding, daily, possibilities!
And as each day comes to a close,
Dream a dream or two,
Then with a prayer thank dear God
For each day given to you.

I sure hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year's.
America is so blessed that we can celebrate the Birth of our Lord and Savior
and share our lives with each other. Take the time to be Thankful for all your
blessing this time of the season. Also, try to remember to count them each day
as we awake and give thanks for another wonderful day to do His will in our lives
as well as for others. This year I'm going to try to do something for someone else
every week. I need to learn to give to others. Let's all try it this year and just maybe
we all can make a difference in this wonder world that God has let us live in.
Have a great and Blessed Day.
