Happy New Year!

Can you believe it?
A new year, a new beginning!
What will we do with it?
We are so blessed!

I personally have written a few of the checks that still have to be written.
Really had to be thinking of the date 
I did it!
I remembered!

That deserved more sparkles!
The first time ever remembering the new year while 
Writing a check!

Did you celebrate with fireworks?
We were surrounded by them into the night
I really like them myself

What does the new year make you think of?

I think immediately of the upcoming Spring!
New life beginning,
The weather warming,
Trees and flowers beginning to bud

New ideas, plans, excitement in the air!

I like the architecture, light fixtures and the plants hanging in this photo.

Do you make New Years Resolutions?

I don't, rarely have

Because I just don't follow through with them

Now I am just thankful for the opportunity to do so

To imagine, what can be done with the time we are given here on earth

Today's Devotional is right on target!

Behold all things have become new!

It is given to us, now let's see what wonderful things we can do with it!

Happy New Year Friends!
