To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1
The seasons turn. The years turn. Lives and civilizations turn. Today, the year is a newborn. How will we choose to dress it, to feed it, to teach it, to learn from it?
Happy New Year! Happy New Beginning!
This morning as I was reading this daily inspiration I thought of spark. This is a new year, new day, new beginning. Today is a clean slate. We can do with this year anything we choose. We can choose to bring about success or failure. We hold the moment in our hands. I for one am ready to bring about success. I'm ready for a great year. I can't explain it but 2010 feels like my year.
A couple of examples of this is a friend I work with has a nephew who he and his brother were in an gas grill explosion, the brother died, then other lived but stayed in criticle conditon, yesterday he walks into our pharmacy, bandaged but whole, now people i'm telling you i went to meet this young man and hugged him. He didn't know me and i surely only knew him through my freind and my prayers, but standing in front of me was a miracle of god. Even he said the doctors couldn't believe it. They came in that morning and told him they were sending him home. NOw mind you he still has to have treatments on his burns but lord willing he is alive. I told him i was standing and seeing a miracle. God is good. Now mind you one died, but i have to wonder was it so one could live?
Second, and not at the bottom of my list is my son, clean now and off drugs for a year, he got a job yesterday, what a new years blessing that was, and he did this on his own. I mean he did the interview, and i work at walmart and i know from personnel how great he did, and that makes me proud. pray that he continues this new Josh and that he keeps this new job. I have asked god daily for a window to open for my son and he has seen to that.
So this is 2010, new iimproved and we can make it what we will. I choose to make it great. HAPPY NEW YEAR SPARK FRIENDS, let's give it heck.
