The New Year welcomes lots of possibilities to each one of us but for my family it brings a lot of new hopes and dreams. Maybe that is true for a lot of people and that is why it is such a big holiday. This year my hopes and dreams seem bigger than ever and my trust in my Lord does too. It's weird how the two go hand-in-hand for me but I am hopeful in so many areas of my life, I can't even begin to explain how I feel. I have a beautiful daughter who is married and happy.

Sundays have become wonderful days for me. Such days of refreshing and rest. I enjoy them more than any other day of the week. Afterall, I get to spend time at church and time with my family and then time blogging or goofing off the rest of the day. I hope you have a day that you enjoy as much as I do. If not, come spend the day with me. I'll show you what relaxation is all about...teehee!!!

ABC Family is usually a favorite channel of mine. This year they have bombarded us with the 25 days of Christmas advertisements long before Thanksgiving (with a countdown to the 25 days). It was exciting for my and my kids knowing we would get to see all the old childhood favorites that we've enjoyed over the years. Instead we've been tormented with Harry Potter's movies and then an assortment of Disney/Pixar favorites -- NOT CHRISTMASy at all. Some didn't even have the holiday in them. I mean what's up with that??? Don't get me wrong I enjoyed watching The Incredibles and Wall-E last night with my two youngest but to coin a phrase C'MON, MAN!!!

Today is my anniversary!!! 24 years and counting!! I am married to the love of my life and am very blessed to have him in my life. We've had our ups and downs like all couples but have such a strong relationship and I am very proud to call him my husband. He is a good provider and a hard worker and most of all, loves me as I am. I couldn't ask for anything more!

How do you know when you hear from God??? We've long since left the days of burning bushes so I ask you again, how do you know? Sometimes I think I hear from Him and things don't progress the way I feel they should. Does that mean I didn't hear right? Today's blog is different from most of Sundays' blogs because I'm not concentrating on today's sermon but rather the story of David as a whole. Let me catch you up...David was annointed King of Israel a looooong time before he ever took throne. In fact, he endured many trials in the years between the 2 events. Did Samuel hear from God when he annointed David? Well, we all know this is a resounding YES! But why did it take so long and why did David have to go through so much before God's word came true? I don't have the answer but I do believe this story is placed in the Bible so that we can see that we, too, have to spend time waiting for God patiently sometimes after His word has been revealed to us or even until His word is revealed. May God's grace sustain us during the time while we wait on Him.
