Welcome 2007!

Just today I journaled about how glad I am to see 2006 roll on out, and yet I have to say I feel God drew me closer to him through it. Funny how we can remember whatever we choose.

A new year lies before me. I do love a new year. It's right up there with new notebooks and new pens or pencils. In fact, it's kind of like a blank page in a new journal, only that's just how I see it. I know that God already has every detail of this coming year inscribed in his mind - how reassuring to know he is directing my every step.

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions but I do feel the Lord has placed some desires on my heart which I need to pursue. More directions than goals.

Tonight we spent a few fun hours with some family and friends. Tomorrow - we'll relax and watch the parade and bowl games. Oh, and eat shrimp! And I need to go shopping for a few new clothes too. All in all, a relaxing way to see the old year out.

Just a few random thoughts as we pass from 2006 to 2007. My mind doesn't function so well after 11 pm, hence the randomness of this post.

Happy New Year to you, my blogging buddies - old and new. I look forward to blogging with you all again this year and seeing where God takes us.

I love a new year, too, Dianne. It always feels like a clean slate to start with, doesn't it?

God's already led us all to each other. It can only get better from there.

Happy New Year to you, too.

Great post! Very much sums up some of the things I would say, but can never find the words for. You write so well :)

Glad your get-together went well and hope you guys had fun. Shrimp sounds so good to me right now! Hope you found some clothes, if you went shopping. We're just hanging out today, didn't feel like fighting crowds :)

Have a great day, a great week, and a wonderful 2007!

I just checked out your blog, so am late for the new year, but can so relate about new paper and pens. and your being a work in pregress, I really like that. As for looking too much, instead of living, writing, I do understand. just keep the writing coming. The rest will take care of itself.

Sorry about the typo, guess it's alright to not be perfect.
