Flowers From GardenTime for a fresh new start. The beginning of a year. The beginning of a decade. Time to put last year’s problems behind us and do like my Grandma always said…FIDO…”Forget it and Drive On”.

It’s no secret that 2009 was a year that many wish they could forget. So many families hurt by loosing homes and loosing jobs.But today is a new day. A new chance to start over. Leave behind the problems of last year, and change your attitude about them. Maybe spend a little more time getting closer to God this year.

My goal is to write more and blog more.  That’s my way of spending more time with God getting spiritual encouragement.

The Message paraphrase is one of my favorite reads: This really helped me today.”So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.” Corinthians 4:16-18
