“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
I’ve indulged myself with some time away from my blog (and yours…) and, oh, how I hope it refreshes me and infuses a new zeal in writing as we begin a new year.
If you’re reading these words, I’m praying for your year to be FULL of ~
… Simplicity (contradiction to “full”? I think not 🙂 )
…Family~~related by blood or love
… Delights and surprises
… Learning new things
… Seeing and meeting the needs of others with your time, talents and resources
Much love to you all…’cause everyone is going through “something”…& everyone needs a little love & kindness.
I’m thankful for you.
~ Robin 🙂
Wishing you the same for the new year also. Looking forward to more posts from you. You’ve been missed.
I’ve been thinking about you this week, Robin. Hoping everything is O.K. and looking forward to more posts soon. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! Wishing you all the same fullness you listed for us 🙂
Heather – over at Fumbling For Words – had a post saying she was going to “enjoy the journey” in 2010. I’m going to try and do that, too. Parts of the road this past year have been pretty tough – and one wonder’s how he/she can delight in that. But you nailed it. Trust in the Known God.
I’m going to do my best to Enjoy The Journey – because I Trust in the Known God.
Very nice post for the New Year, Robin! Looking forward to seeing you again at Blissdom & I hope to hang out with some new folks this time.
thanks for such a precious blog entry. I love everything about who Corrie Ten Boom was and has left us with. My fave from her sharing was when she often spoke of the beautiful tapestry… and how God sees the most amazing finished tapestry as He looks at our life from Heaven.. we see all the under threads…which seems so tangled and confused. She often reminded us to see things from Gods viewpoint, from above, and then we see the true picture. I remember in bible college, being so envious when I found out some friends were going to visit her at a bible study…. and I was ill at that time. She was an incredible women of God who gave so many of us a great example of a godly likfe inspite of your outward circumstances? Do you know that people even got saved just being in her presence, without her even being able to speak after her last 2 strokes… because of her life, people would be at her bedside and pour their hearts out to her.. and she would speak thru her eyes to them… there was more than one testimony also of some of her nurses would felt the presence of angels at her bedside during her last days…I pray that if the Lord tarries, that each of us reading and commenting on this blog will also leave a legacy of Love, His love, as she did.
I love the Corrie ten Boom quote!
Happy new year to you Robin. Glad to see you back in blog land.
I wish you much more than “happy” as well…
…you are a treasure. Heaps of blessings to you!!!
I wish you the same, happy new year to you and to yours!
Thank you for the lovely thoughts, Robin, and may God bless and keep you and yours in the coming year and forever after.
Happy New Year, Robin!!!!!!
Thank you, friend. This simple comment is gas in my tank!
Well, now…I'm curious :). Kiawah??? I'm well after a lot of holiday travel…and I'm hoping to start blog hoppin' soon! I MISS that part of "this"!
Ahhh, thanks Corinne–they're all things that MATTER to me! 🙂
Right focus helps with right thinking. I'm taking these words to heart, too.
Difficult times over the past year makes me wanna hug you…I dunno…just 'cause we go "back".
Miss you friend…and yeah, I know–it's not you, it's ME!
Wait, are you saying you WANT to hang out with me or hang out with the new folks? Cause I would LOVE to hang out with you–we really didn't have much opportunity to talk, and if I remember correctly……..I was supposed to email you a long, long time ago after you asked a few questions. But I'm drawing a blank now! Forgive me??? 🙂
Oh, Cathy…thank you for sharing this! Corrie was a lovely manifestation of Christ, and I know when she saw Him she heard those words, "Well done…" I've often heard the tapestry metaphor, and it's perfect. It's also helpful to think of life's circumstances that way when it doesn't make sense at all!
Blessings in the New Year :).
Here's to hoping I learn how to manage my time better in the New Year…cause I genuinely miss the blogging community!
Blessings to you, too, Debbie!
Dear Jessie/Jessica (cause I never know which one to call you, lol), YOU have been one of my brightest encouragers of 2009. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 🙂 xo
You have SO reminded me that the Fun Monday listing is dreadfully lacking. I bet you already know that, though.
Happy New Year to YOU!!
Thank you, Sandy…I wish you those same things. 🙂
KARMYN!!!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND THE FAM, TOO!!!! 🙂 xo
