Prayer for Today

My prayer for today ~

 Dear Lord,

 Give me the eyes to see your purposes all around me.

 Help me to see in the simplest of things, the blessings that I can be to others and the blessings they are to me.

 Let me be faithful in my heart's attitude and my mind's thoughts, in the words I say and the things I do.

 Guide me on my life's path and give me eyes to see your path before me. 

Let me be a faithful guide to others on their life's path.

 Take delight in the LORD,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart

Psalm 37:4

Happy New Year to Everyone!

‎"We will open the book. It's pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and it's first chapter is New Year's Day."

Edith Lovejoy Pierce

I think I've begun a "new" New Year's tradition! Yesterday, on New Year's Eve, I took everything out of my closet, 12 years of dusty treasures, in boxes and bags. What once filled my closet, now fills my room! I have to admit, the only reason I did such a thing is because I will be having some plumbing work done under my house and the only way they can get there is through the floor of my closet!! Now that's a good house plan and design for you!

 Anyway, I usually just put it all back without sorting anything first, but. . . . this year . . . I have resolved to sort through each and every box and paper and bag before putting them back in my closet! It's really sort of fun to find memories long forgotten. Of course some things are better thrown away and forgotten, but that's fun too. 

My daughter and I saw the new Narnia movie yesterday as well, and I left the theatre in tears! It was sooo good!! I would really love to see it again. Aslan has such a powerful presence. I love how they portrayed the symbolism and truths. 

Kids are still sleeping, I might sneak out the door for a walk around the block and back to do some more ORGANIZING!!! 

Have a wonderful day all~and have a blessed New Year~
