Happy New Year!

Happy 2012, everyone!
a fresh start - a blank slate - a new year

I pray that this year will be a wonderful and blessed one for you all!

My brother and I waited up for the new year together (my mom and dad decided they'd just rather get some sleep;), and then watched "Laura" a 1940's detective/murder mystery classic starring Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews.  Very suspenseful.  Right up our alley.  Didn't get to bed until 2:00 PM. =)

I only have one goal for this year: growing closer to my Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I haven't give Him the time He deserves the past few years.  Frankly, it's been like riding on an out-of-control roller coaster here at times, what with my mom being ill with Lyme disease.  Sometimes, I just need to stop and read my Bible.  I talk to Him a lot throughout the day, but I haven't spent much time diving deep into His Word.  I plan to change that this year, by His grace and through His strength.

As far as the rest goes, I'm just going to wait and see what happens.  I need to practice that anyway - waiting.

However...I would very much like to visit my cousins on the east coast this year.  I haven't seen them in over a year - almost two years, now!  Far too long.  I'm praying that the Lord will work that out somehow.  He can:)

Happy Trails, y'all!


  1. Happy New Year! What a great resolution to have.

  2. Happiest of New Years, dear! I missed you so, and thought of you all in the last few seconds of the year:)

    I've only seen pictures of Gene Tierney... need to see one of her films soon.

    And you resolution is resolutely beautiful. Amen.
    L0ve you,


Comments are my one weakness - thanks for taking the time to say hello!
