HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

LET'S START ANEW!

A new year calls for a new beginning and a new start.
I am starting once again with the intent to do better than this
past year. I have done this in the past and I know it is possible to
succeed in achieving my goals.

Last year's verse still ...
HELLO ALL,

WELCOME! to my Spark Page.

Come, sit down and have a cup of tea while we get to know each other!

Hope you enjoy your stay!

LET'S START ANEW!

A new year calls for a new beginning and a new start.
I am starting once again with the intent to do better than this
past year. I have done this in the past and I know it is possible to
succeed in achieving my goals.

Last year's verse still applies:

"The LORD says, “Forget what happened before,
and do not think about the past.
Look at the new thing I am going to do.
It is already happening. Don’t you see it?
I will make a road in the desert
and rivers in the dry land."

Isaiah 43:18-19 NCV

But this year I am adding two others to it:

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you.
Matthew 6:33.

...with God all things are possible
Matthew 19:26

Keep God first in your life and let's reach those goals!

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog about my mom. I a sorry to hear about your mom and hope the best for you both. It is difficult to lose our parents and it is extremely hard to come to terms with and accept. But they want the best for us and we will be strong and carry on. Take care of yourself during this time. Thinking and praying for you and your family.

Hi Sue,
Things are still crazy here. I can't remember what I've told you so far, but Dad is in a nursing home, and we're trying to get him out of there and to the VA. The nursing home is not caring for my dad like they should and it is a constant battle. I'm so tired of it all. Please keep us in your prayers.

Work is crazy busy, and between that and home I am exhausted most of the time. Paralyzed part of the time. Depressed some of the time. I'm putting in for vacation time in the next couple of weeks just to get myself back together. Thanks for keeping in touch. Love your beautiful background page!
