I don’t know about you and how your year went, but mine was a mixed bag on many levels! This year flew by as no other before it, and in many ways I’m glad to see it go. Still, as a New Year looms on the not-too-distant-horizon once again, I can’t help but wonder what it will bring…. I’m sure it will bring its own mixed bag.
Whatever the case, I know that our God holds us in the grip of His mighty and wonderful grace, regardless of our circumstances. And it is for that reason I can say without hesitation, “Welcome, 2011!”
So it is with joy I wish you and your loved ones a very
Happy New Year!!!
Joyfully, in the grip of His grace and love,

Following is something I wrote (i.e. God gave me!) for an assignment for class a few weeks ago. I have been encouraged to share it here. I pray it blesses you!
[Paraphrased by Mary Comm]
My sons and daughters,
I know your way is hard. The pressures of life are great. I know how natural it is for your heart to be afraid, to worry, to be overwhelmed by your circumstances. I see your struggles to be good, to carry the weight of your load, and to carry it well. I see how this life and our enemy beats you down and wears you out.
But what I want you to hear from Me today, is that I love you. I want you to know that I am your light and your salvation. I am your strength and your saving grace; I am your Redeemer. I know you are afraid…but you do not have to be afraid. There is truly no one, no thing you need to fear when you are under My light and when you are encompassed in My salvation.

So…I was driving home from taking our daughter to school this morning…in the SNOW! (Yay, it’s snowing!) Anyway, one of those enormous, slow-moving snowplows pulled out in front of me. As I was following him—did I mention he was driving very slowly?—I thought, You know, some people would get frustrated and zip around him because he’s driving so slowly and blocking their way. But I realized in that moment, that regardless of its speed, this truck was clearing a path for me, making my way safer. So, I took a deep breath and simply appreciated the timing of this truck and the benefit of following it, even though it was moving so slowly.
About that time a correlation came into my mind. Read the rest of this entry »
