First I want to apologize to my readers for dropping out. I do have a good explanation! I fell helping my hubby put insulation in our attic hitting my head. It caused a concussion and I could not be on the computer or watch tv for any length of time.
Now! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I don't make resolutions, do you? I used to years ago. It was tradition after all! Then I found that as the time passed, I either forgot them or felt bad for not keeping them. I punished myself by my own thoughts. I looked over my rules to discover that I was leaving the most important things out; living and having fun and joy in my life.
Jesus came that we might have life and live it more abundantly. He came that we might be saved by His Grace not by laws. Of course being in His grace doesn't mean we abandon rules - that would lead to chaos. But it does mean that in Him we can have joy in all things.
I have adapted a word for this year: FOCUS. Focus on His word. Focus on loving others as He has loved me. As long as I focus on Him, all will be well.
May your life this year be filled with much favor and many blessings!
