Out with old and In with the new

Hello, out with the old and in with the new is the idea of the day.

It’s a great time to reflect on the blessings and lessons learned in the past 12 months and take them with us into the new year.

It’s a great time to ask the Lord to help us break bad habits we’ve been trying to break on our own but realize we can’t conquer them by ourselves.

It’s also a great time to ask Him to help us start new habits, good habits that will better our physical, emotional and spiritual lives.

So having said that, let’s celebrate the new year.  Like each day, it’s a new beginning, to be better than you were yesterday.  Does it mean you have to win the Noble Peace Prize or start your own multi-million dollar business?

No, it just means take a deep breath and determine to be the best you can be each day and the most important thing to me is to know you are at peace with your Maker.

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. ~ Romans 5:1

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
