Happy NEW Year

I woke up this morning with a sense of excitement, and I was reminded of this verse, "Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:22-23). God's mercies are new and fresh each morning we open our eyes to a new day.....not just on January 1st....but EVERY day. I'm going to pray that God would put a brand new excitement in our hearts every morning. Great is His faithfulness!

This year, I'm going to be memorizing 24 new verses as a part of Beth Moore's blog (see link below)
My first verse is Isaiah 33:6 - "He is a constant source of stability; He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him." This is crazy, but I picked this verse out last week and set it aside to be my first memory verse for this year......and when I logged on this morning to post my verse to Beth's blog -- I saw that she and I picked the same verse!!!! How COOL is that?? Everyone who knows me, knows that Beth Moore is my best friend (well, she actually doesn't know me personally, but we're still BFF in my head). So when I saw that, I laughed and thought how cool God is sometimes.

Anyhow - I have to get off of here now because Larry is taking me to Barnes & Noble. I have to snatch up this chance any time I have it because Larry detests book stores. I sometimes wonder how in the world I could marry someone who doesn't like to just goes against the grain...but I digress.
