To my chagrin,
relief, and great amazement, another year has whizzed by. Faster than
the speed of light, it would seem. 2012 brimmed with business. A
whirlwind of business. At the moment it's a bit quieter around here,
but the busy cycle will begin again soon, to be sure. I'm just thankful
for the little time I have to relax. The white blanket enveloping the
ground is lovely to observe...from inside a warm house. Getting
back to my blog, for however short a time that may be (who knows if
you'll see another post again in the near future!) has been enjoyable.
Though there are countless things this past year that I wistfully wish I could have
accomplished, or even begun, I'm thankful to God for the things I did
accomplish, and the time, whether large or small, He gives to do more.
My camera's abode, for example, has long been the shelf, and I hope to
dust it off a bit more this year than last. Before I sign off, I
thought this would be a good verse to share in lieu of this new year:
31:8 ~ "The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with
you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
"If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear." ~ A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose WOULD be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage."
~ L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
