Happy New Year!

I pray that this new year brings many good thing to each of your lives as well as my own! 2009 hasn't been the easiest year of my life. We have been through many things that can only make us stronger and that makes me have high hopes for 2010. I am honestly looking forward to this year more than any others in the past. As I read this poem, it inspired me and I wanted to share this with you!

A New Year With The Lord

A new year is about to unfold
With new opportunities to explore
Doors will open for new experiences
New adventures with the Lord

Remember not the former things
The things of this past year
The Lord will do new things in us
Much more than we are aware

For He will make a way for us
As we put our trust in Him
And He will guide our every step
By His presence we have within

What God has placed within our hearts
We find we’ll be able to do
If we look for the opportunities
We’ll see the door to go through

We mustn’t let anything hold us back
But rise up and take our place
And be all that God wants us to be
With a fresh touch of His grace
