New Year's Eve Reflections


The Eve of a new year... scary in a way, I'm getting older and time is flying past faster and faster and my kids are growing up and becoming more independent. 

But as I reflect on 2015, I can give thanks for God's faithfulness to us as a family and recall my motto text for the year, 'God is the strength of my heart' and how true He has been to His word!

It has been a good year as we visited a few places on my bucket list, Colonial Williamsburg, Biltmore Estate NC, and closer to home the Giant's Causeway.

I confess though, that I did not finish those WIPs I thought to do but I did have so much fun stitching away at other projects.

Blogging has its ups and downs, but I really enjoy 'meeting' new friends from every corner of the globe.
Thanks to all who follow and comment so faithfully! You are the reason I keep at this!

 Hope you'll all stay for another year of posts!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!!

  9. Happy New Year, my friend! So thankful to have met you this year, and trusting God to bless you in the coming year. Yes, I surely know what you mean about it being scary and our children growing up so fast. May the dear Lord just give us the courage we need to live each day in His grace and will.

  14. Oh I can't wait until you go to the Giant's Causeway. I saw that when I was reading something last year, and I looked it up and I do wish I could see it. But if you go see it that is just as good. I love your phrase. It is scary watching our children grow up, but it is good too. I hope you have a wonderful New Year and that 2016 is the best.
