Happy New Year!

If you look closely (you can click to enlarge), you can see the green of daffodils breaking through the cold snow near these very old tombstones. I took this picture shortly after losing three people very dear to me. Those little daffodils spoke so quietly and powerfully to the reality of new life, new beginnings, new hope.

And he who sat upon the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." --Revelation 21:5

May the beginning of this New Year bring you life and hope.

What a beautiful thought -- and a beautiful image -- to start the new year. God in his infinte wisdom knew what he was doing when he set the world in motion, creating light and dark, sunset and sunrise, a new day, a new year, a new beginning. Cheers!

You sound like an advocate of intelligent design, hmmm? Cheers to you, too!

That is a beautiful photograph. A visual poem. Thanks. I really needed it today.

I love Psalm 136 -- the retelling of God's interaction with Israel with every line followed by "His love endures forever." Maybe next year at our Thanksgiving gathering, we can each share a way that God has blessed us in 2006 and follow with a group statement of, "His love endures forever." What a powerful testimony to God's goodness to our family that would be!
