Happy New Year

Happy New Year from my family to you!

There is no Friday Fellowship today but I will be back in 2017 with a whole list of interesting people to feature here!

Thank you for reading here and for being apart of our family.  I will be honest - there are many days that I wonder if anyone even reads here much any more and if I should consider hanging up the old blog.  And then just in the last few weeks, I have received the sweetest, most amazing emails from readers and I know it's not time yet.  Thank you for the encouragement many of you have given me.  I love sharing this space with you!

I pray that 2017 will be a good one for you!


This is what God says,
    the God who builds a road right through the ocean,
    who carves a path through pounding waves,
The God who summons horses and chariots and armies—
    they lie down and then can’t get up;
    they’re snuffed out like so many candles:
Forget about what’s happened;
    don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. 
I’m about to do something brand-new.
    It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
    rivers in the badlands.
Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’
    —the coyotes and the buzzards—
Because I provided water in the desert,
    rivers through the sun-baked earth,
Drinking water for the people I chose,
    the people I made especially for myself,
    a people custom-made to praise me.  

Isaiah 42:16-21, The message
