Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Inspired by Jayne at JOURNEY THROUGH GRACE, I've been looking back through my blog this year.

I started this blog on February 21, so I don't have quite a year. It's been a year full of challenges, joys, and one hurricane that was too close for comfort.

For my blog, it's been a year of starts and stops........ one step forward, then plop, down I fall! Well, I am just a baby in the blogworld, aren't I? The good news is that I keep getting up and trying again......... and there's joy in the process!

Looking back through the year helped me realize a few things that are true for me.

  • Looking for the beauty and joy in each day is IMPORTANT for me!
  • I miss writing poetry......... I find my voice there
  • I've found inspiration, hope, and joy in following others' blogs....... thank you all!
  • Being still, and opening my heart to God, will keep me grounded, and I'll find strength and guidance through any challenge

So, Happy New Year, my friends!
