I love looking forward to the new year.
After the year we have had, anything new will be welcomed.
It wasn’t all bad, in fact we had so pretty awesome times, but in between those wonderful moments there were things going on that drained the life out of me at times. I know I shouldn’t be so evasive about Our Journey but not all of it can be put out there for the world to read. Some things need to remain private. I’m sure these things are nothing others haven’t gone through or will someday themselves. It just life! I don’t know where this road we are on will be taking us but I do know that God has never mislead us and I am looking forward to embracing whatever He has planned.
With that said, you all know that these “Grand’s” are what keep me going. I am so blessed! Ok, their parents amaze me as well. They are doing such an awesome job. So many things have settled down allowing them to just be the parents they are meant to be. I love watching them and I have learned to just sit back and soak it up.
So, right off the bat we get to celebrate Birthday’s! My daughter, my first born, and her son, her first born, share a birthday. Add in it’s on the 2nd, and it has always made New Years a time to celebrate! Then it’s my birthday a week later and then our second “Grand” has her day the first days of February. It’s like one party after another around here because just a few weeks later, our 3rd “Grand” has her birthday. I love how our first three grand's have their birthdays the first 3 months of the year. After these we get a break till June, then it’s August, September and October for the last 4. And repeat! Each year bringing growth in so many directions. They all have such energy to learn all life has to offer and are sponges soaking it all up. So far we have a sports enthusiast who really wants to be the next VIP of the Angels. We have an author who creates some of the most wonderful stories. Then it’s the scientist who loves mysteries and forensics, and loves creating her own experiments. Our August dude is becoming quite the outdoorsman. I foresee father and son hunting expedition's. The last three are just beginning to discover what the world has to offer and with them all being under 6, the world is at their fingertips. They reach for and enjoy so many new things, I can’t wait to see which seeds sprout within them. Our June boy, who is the youngest, already shows interest in what grandpa does. Maybe he will be the next Water Guy. One loves to sing and dance. And one is all about being a princess right now, on a horse of course! Blessings, always blessings!
Our Journey Through LIFE has been difficult at times but…with every New Year, comes New Journey’s.
“Thanks for Their Gifts (Philippian's 4:10-13)
10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
