Happy New Year To Me!

Today is November 6 and I turn 56 and I am loving it!

Life either expands or shrinks as you age.

It depends on your attitude and activity level.

If you love life and love learning and love people then each year is a wider adventure.

If you take new action to push the boundaries of last year, then the coming year is bigger than the previous year.

At 56 I am in AWE of my Great God who has blessed me beyond measure and blessed me inspite of my stupidity and frequent failures. Some people have frequent flier miles...I have frequent failure miles...but by learning from those failures they are taking me new places!

One of my favorite passages is:
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

If his great love and mercy and kindness is new EVERY MORNING then how much more are they NEW EVERY YEAR?

I can't wait to explore the NEWNESS of life and the newness of HIS love during 56!

I bless you LORD with ALL that is within me!
