Remember the former things, those of long ago;
    I am God, and there is no other;
    I am God, and there is none like me.
10 
I make known the end from the beginning,
    from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
    and I will do all that I please.
ISAIAH 46:9-10

Sunday, January 20, 2019

These things I remember
    as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
    under the protection of the Mighty One
with shouts of joy and praise
    among the festive throng.
PSALM 42:4

Sunday, January 13, 2019

I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, 
because I hear about your love for all his holy people
 and your faith in the Lord Jesus. 
PHILEMON 4

2019 ~ THE YEAR TO.....

The start of a new year.

New challenges.

A new word.

As always, I spent a lot of time praying for and thinking on this new word. There were a number of options that presented themselves, early on, followed by weeding and pruning. Nuances are so important to me as I consider each word and weigh them in the balance. It is a process before it finally settles in.

So here we are, 2019, the year to...…..


There are a few definitions that I am hoping to explore. To do so means, creating new habits. Taking on responsibility. Choosing, with intention, what I pursue.

REFLECT : [ri-flekt]
                  :  to think, meditate, or ponder 
                  :  remembering experiences 

It is important to remember the past. 
The people. 
The times. 
The lessons learned.
To cherish the memories. 
Take time to look back.





REFLECT :  to consider something deeply and thoroughly
                  :  to estimate the worth of


I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.

 I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.

Your ways, God, are holy.

    What god is as great as our God?
Psalm 77:11-13

Spending time with the Creator. Thinking on His works. Meditating on HIM!! Being present in His presence. Not just remembering but anticipating!

REFLECT :  to be reflected or mirrored.
                  :  to give back or show an image



As water reflects the face,
    so one’s life reflects the heart.
Proverbs 27:19


Created in the image of God. Knit together with a plan and a purpose.

Being conformed to the image of His Son.

As I grow, I hope that my heart reflects the living God transforming me. From ashes to beauty. 

Remember. Ponder. Meditate. Consider. REFLECT. 

2019, I'm ready.

ALMOST THE END

Well here we are.

Almost the end of another year.

In a few minutes the hands of time will move us into the new but for now, I am looking back over 2018. The year to CHOOSE.



There are lots of choices we make in life. And this year was full of choices. Some I liked and others I didn't and then there were the circumstances in which I had no influence but the choice of how I would respond.

Choose Joy. 

Choose Grace. (This one I put my wall as a reminder that ALL is grace.)


Choose Life.

Choose to serve.

Choose whom you will serve.



This was a hard year for so many reasons. 

This year we faced loss on many levels and in multiple ways. 

Yet, I choose to trust in the One in whom I have placed ALL of my hope. I choose to follow even when the end is unclear. I choose peace in the midst of the storm. 

I choose joy, through the tears in which I end 2018, but filled the hopefulness of all that 2019 will bring.

WORDS FOR THE WEEKEND


He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
    he gently leads those that have young.
