~My New Year's Prayer for You~

About six months ago, I started this blog; my very first.  Little did I know how much joy I would receive from writing and sharing ideas about my family, the things that I love and the projects that I take on.  More importantly, the joy I would receive from the people who have stopped by to read what I have shared.  From the four corners of this nation and beyond.  People who have taken a little time out of their busy day to share their thoughts; kind words of encouragement in all areas of what I write about or share pictures of; give kind compliments about my family and the things that I may cook or create; and offering prayers on my behalf when I have had a bad day.  People who care enough that they desire to become my friends...dear friends.  Dear friends whom I have never met face to face.

In turn, I receive great joy as I look forward to reading your posts where I receive much inspiration with your creativity in areas I may or may not be familiar with, or what you do in the kitchen, or the hobbies you enjoy.  I find such kinship with those of you who share the same interests, the love of family and home, and knowing that we are sisters in Christ.

As we enter this new year, my desire is that we may continue to be an inspiration and encouragement to one another as we share our interests, our hearts and our friendships.  I am truly grateful and blessed.  With that, I want to share this New Year's prayer with you....

May you always enjoy the love of family and friends, 

May you be blessed with health and happiness,

May you continue to enjoy new experiences with God,

And may your walk with the Lord be closer than ever.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, " plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Have a joyous first day of the New Year ~

Velma this is so sweet and I agree. I have met some wonderful women through blogging and some I have even been able to meet face to face. Thanks for your friendship and always kind and uplifting words.

What a sweet post, prayer and verse...it's my favorite! :) I wish the same for your new year too. It seems so impossible that it could be 2012 already. It seems like Y2K was just a couple of years ago! lol
I'm glad you enjoyed my childhood memories post...I had a fun time writing it. My poor little duck..I was devastated when he flipped upside down, but I can laugh about it now! lol ;-) I thought sure he kicked the can! (and I was mad at my daddy) :)
Have a wonderful week!
Missy :)

What a sweet post! I have enjoyed getting to know you. Amazing thing, this blogging. It seems you either get it or you don't. (no one in my family gets it)
I hope 2012 is a most wonderful year for you.
