HOPE FOR THE NEW YEAR

Click on the picture to read the verse

What a year ~ it was truly the year of change.  The biggest was the move in June from the little cottage across the street from Aunt Trula that we enjoyed for six years.   Now the continuing adventure of our new life in the Tree House.

Moving meant not seeing some friends and neighbors as often, and finding a new church and making new friends and neighbors, which we have.

Also we have spent more time with our adult children and grandchildren living closer to more of them on this side of LA.

I have great HOPE FOR THE NEW YEAR as the picture shares, and I look forward to a new year of old blogging friends, and making some new ones.

To all of you who have so faithfully followed my blog and left many wonderful comments.... I thank you!  You've truly added much love and support to my year of 2014.

  2. I know moving away from friends can be so challenging to one's faith and well being. I pray this new year brings you so much hope and joy - beyond anything you could ever imagine. You definitely deserve it, Wanda. All our love to you! xx

  3. Happy New Year, Wanda. I have such a difficult time linking to Michael's blog and I have no idea why. Your new church sounds wonderful. We are going to study Colossians this month after spending a lot of time in Job (which I really loved).

    1. Hi Chris...The way I link is go to my dashboard after I have published my post and hit "view" when the blog comes up ~ highlight the URL at the top and copy...then go to CT sign in and past on the URL blank after you sign your name. Should work.

  4. Changes...Nothing stays the same, does it?
    Our year has had many changes, some that came upon us unexpected, but God.
    He never fails us, and for that I am so grateful. Even in all the changes that take place in our lives nothing is a surprise to our great God.

    May you be blessed in this New Year ahead of us with all the changes you are going through, Wanda.
    All the newness in your life will be exciting as the Lord guides you through each and every day. Enjoy!

    Sweet blessings, Debbie
