Phew! I am back, finally! Christmas decorations have been packed away, thank you notes have been written, recipes and traditions (old and new) have been evaluated as to whether they make the cut for next years festivities...done, done and done! Now on to 2013!
Since there is just one day left of January, the traditional month of goal setting, diet plans and resolutions, I thought that I would finally weigh in (pun intended) with the "list" that has been swirling around my brain for a good part of the last 30 days.
Because I am a visual learner my list comes in picture form (see above)!
What can be better at this time of year than singing a new song to the Lord. We will have a new year full of opportunities to sing new songs, new shouts for joy, new hymns of praise at the marvelous and amazing things that the Lord will do in us and through us this year! Exciting right? Singing praises about who God is focuses our hearts and minds on the Lord and not our circumstances...instilling us with joy and increasing our faith! Godis at work in our lives, in and through all our trials, giving us new songs to sing. Why? So others may hear our song and trust in the Lord.
He gave me reason to sing a new song,
praising our God.
May many see what God has done,
so that they might swear allegiance to him and trust in the Lord!
A wise man once said,"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear". That is my resolution this year...sing the song the Lord had given me, loudly that all would hear and believe.
I know the list is short, but the chorus goes on and on.
