Time Keeps on Slippin’ Into the Future

A new year is upon us

A clean slate

Another beginning

Many take this opportunity to reflect

Upon the year behind

What did we accomplish?

Where did we fail?

What should we have done differently?

Or not at all

And the year ahead

Where shall we go?

How will we do it?

When does it start?

Who will we see?

What will we be?

We had  some changes in our lives in 2012

We became Empty Nesters

We are learningto enjoy our new found freedom

I lost some weight

I gained some back

I retired from my position at our church

Mark finally got a new car

We added another grandbaby to our clan

And another son-in-love

My hairdresser came back to work

We had some dear family and friends

Go home to Jesus

Yes, the year 2012 brought about much change

And it seems nothing is the same

Nothing is normal

Our boat has been rocked

Our plans have shifted

Some things we saw coming

Others blind-sided us

Change is good

Loss is inevitable

Hope springs eternal

An even keel will come again

A new normal will emerge

Until it does

We can rest in the knowledge

That God is in control

He sees the end from the very beginning

He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us

To give us a FUTURE and a HOPE

A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps.
