Family and Friends,

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,

saith the LORD,

thoughts of peace,

and not of evil,

to give you an expected end.



A New Day



A New Life







“On this one long, blessed night we refused to worry,

allowing only hopes and dreams for the future of the human race,

held in the miniscule hands of these newborns.”

― A.B. Shepherd,


A New Journey







In a spirit of hope and new beginnings,

we linked arms like a couple of kids.

Pushing aside sad thoughts, we strode off into our future.”

― A.B. Shepherd,




The Maiden Voyage With Jesus And Me


The waters are uncharted, at least for me.

How will it go Lord?

Will the sea be choppy or smooth?

Perhaps some of both.

I am free as a breeze.

You have made me so.

Your love has brought me to this place.

Now here we go from shore Lord.

Ah, the seagulls fly around us.

They too are enjoying the freedom you gave them.

The skies are blue,

And the clouds are puffy white.

Yes, I am free.

And life is beautiful.

Thank you Jesus.

We made it, You and me.




John 8:36

 If the Son therefore shall make you free,

ye shall be free indeed.




“Perhaps that is where our choice lies —

in determining how we will meet the inevitable end of things,

and how we will greet each new beginning.”

― Elana K. Arnold





Phillipians 3:13-14


I count not myself to have apprehended:

but this one thing I do,

forgetting those things which are behind,

and reaching forth unto those things which are before,


I press toward the mark

for the prize

of the high calling of God

in Christ Jesus.


 Forgetting our past releases our future.


Only a night from old to new,

Only a sleep from night to morn.

The new is but the old come true,

Each sunrise sees a new year born.

~Helen Hunt Jackson



Thank you for stopping by and may this be the year,

the Lord gives you the desires of your heart!
