Well, ladies, the holidays are over. They come and go so quickly. I hope each of you have had a blessed season. Mine entailed a nice surprise. For the first time in over 10 years, I was able to spend Christmas Day with my family. There were a lot of surprised faces! That was fun. Life goes by so quickly and we must sieze the moments while we can.
Of course, the snow wasn't fun. It was beautiful, but the driving was terrible. The 1-2 inches they predicted for over the entire weekend came in about the first few hours of the day Saturday. I was quickly reminded why I love the good, old south!! We felt so inadequate and unprepared - no snow brushes, snow boots, or snow tires!! We just had to laugh at it and let others drive us around!! Next time, if there is one, I'll be ready!
Isn't that how the enemy tries to make us feel, though - inadequate and unprepared. That's when we just have to let others "drive us around." We must rely on one another to pull us through those times. Then next time - be ready!
I want to be prepared for this next year. I am looking for many great things. God has given so many promises and I'm not about to let go of even a one. I think this new Bible reading program is wonderful! We are going to grow so much through this...and the discussion class will be such a help for all of us. Then, to add to it, the new study on Revelation. I pray it awakens us and helps us realize not only how close these events are to happening - but what we must do before they do. We have a work.
Let's all be busy about the Father's business. I pray that this year we will win more souls than in all our years combined. We don't have much time. We must seize the moment.
Wishing each of you a blessed and prosperous New Year!
