We ended 2010 spending the evening with our good friends and our youngest and his new wife. We actually made it to Midnight!! It was probably the first time in 5 years that we made it. For some reason, I needed to be able to say "good-bye" to 2010 and "Hello" to 2011. 2010 had some wonderful highs, but it also had some very low lows!

On 1-1-11, my mind kept going to the phrase "I am doing something new," so I looked up the verse. It was meant so specifically for me as this new year begins!

Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

This new year brings with it the necessity to forget the former things and to not dwell on them (good and bad!). God is doing a new thing! I am really beginning to perceive it! He will make the way, He is the Way! On New Year's Eve, I felt so pessimistic about the upcoming year, but His Word has given me hope! No matter what we face in the year to come, He is God, He is on His throne, and He will get us through, just like He did last year.

The first day of 2011 was spent with family and friends, again. The wall in my bedroom is not completed and ready for fresh paint this coming spring. I have a door for my basement shower/laundry room! Movies were watched, laughter was all around, and peace reigned!

Today, I'm off to watch my friend get sworn-in for county supervisor and then it's more year-end bookwork and prep for this years. The weather is decent, the snow is gone, and I have a confident expectation for God's working this new year. I hope you do, too!
