Happy 2011.
This year I want to be intentional about discovering
God's goodness and blessings in my everyday life.
Feel free to follow along on my journey.

I have claimed this verse for my 2011:

PSALM 65:11

You crown the year with Your goodness,
And Your paths drip with abundance.

Here is the Psalm 65 in it's entirety:

1 What mighty praise, O God,
belongs to you in Zion.
We will fulfill our vows to you,
2 for you answer our prayers.
All of us must come to you.
3 Though we are overwhelmed by our sins,
you forgive them all.
4 What joy for those you choose to bring near,
those who live in your holy courts.
What festivities await us
inside your holy Temple.

5 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds,
O God our savior.
You are the hope of everyone on earth,
even those who sail on distant seas.
6 You formed the mountains by your power
and armed yourself with mighty strength.
7 You quieted the raging oceans
with their pounding waves
and silenced the shouting of the nations.
8 Those who live at the ends of the earth
stand in awe of your wonders.
From where the sun rises to where it sets,
you inspire shouts of joy.

9 You take care of the earth and water it,
making it rich and fertile.
The river of God has plenty of water;
it provides a bountiful harvest of grain,
for you have ordered it so.
10 You drench the plowed ground with rain,
melting the clods and leveling the ridges.
You soften the earth with showers
and bless its abundant crops.
11 You crown the year with a bountiful harvest;
even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
12 The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture,
and the hillsides blossom with joy.
13 The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep,
and the valleys are carpeted with grain.
They all shout and sing for joy!

My prayer this year is that God will continue to reveal himself to my weak and fearful heart.
My prayer is that God will continue to write His story through my life.
My prayer is that I will trust in His sovereignty, so that no matter what hardship I face in my life I will have the ability (through the power of the Lord's spirit) to "stand firm" and know in my heart that God will get me through every valley that is a part of my journey.

So, let's begin.....

Today's blessing:
Taking my kids out on their new scooters. We went to the basketball court down the street and they rode their scooters, looked for pine cones, ran down the hill, and looked at the snowy mountains.
Abby came over to me and sat down in my lap. She laid her head on my knee and told me that she would love me forever and that even when she is 15 she will be my girl and live with me and daddy. She also told me that when she has a baby it would be okay if me, daddy and logan came to the hospital.
Glad to get that cleared up.
what a girl I have.
