HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

January 1, 2015

Happy New Year 2015:

I want to thank all of you who have come to my site and read what I have had to say during 2014.   I hope I can share a few posts for 2015.  Many times I have felt that I didn’t really have much to share.  Some of the health issues I battle are inability to focus.  That is one reason for writing or emailing because I can take my time and write during periods when my mind functions a little.  Sometimes during the middle of a post, my mind decides it cannot concentrate and I have to leave it and come back later when I can concentrate once again.  Well, that is my excuse for not having very many posts this year.

This year I plan to use “my blog, my voice” for sharing the struggles that we fight daily.  Recently, I had a cousin pass away from cancer.  He struggled for 11 months.   My Mom is struggling with dementia and I watch the process daily.   It has robbed her of so many choices.  She is 88 years old and at the end stages of this disease.   Yet, I see a joy and peace and calm about her that is uplifting.  For those of you who are struggling with health issues, financial issues, and other life problems, remember that God has a plan for us.  The healing power of God helps us through these struggles if we turn to Him.   He is the source and the rock.

There is a hymn that I love that comes to mind so many times when I face struggles.

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
2
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
3
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
4
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Have a blessed and wonderful New Year filled with the Hope of Jesus Christ.
