Ready for the New Year

2010 has been a difficult year for me.  When I look back over the year, I realize there have been many sad and tearful days...

There were days of joy and laughter but so many with tears...It has ended with tears because of the loss of a dear family member...It is in times like this that I am thankful for my Heavenly Father.  I just don't know if I could make it without His big lap to crawl into and cry, or without his tender loving voice to tell me things will be OK again some day.

It is because of Him that I can keep going on.  He gives me hope for the new year.  Hope that days ahead will bring smiles and laughter again.  Hope for happy times and cherished moments with loved ones.  He also gives me strength to rise up and battle the enemy one more day...one more battle...one more year...because in the end I know we will have victory.  As we head into this new year of 2011, I rise up again with hope in Him.

Until Next Time
