It's New Year's Eve and another year is about to end. I've been thinking about fresh starts,
Over Christmas break, the kids were taking personality tests,
trying to figure out how to describe themselves in personality test terms.
I decided that I am too old to care what number I am,
but I am not too old to change.
I want more grace.
Grace to forgive,
grace to love the irritating,.
grace to endure whatever the new year throws my way,
grace to grow old gracefully..
Grace to admit what needs admitting.
Grace to keep my mouth shut when it needs keeping.
I am unable to be this graceful...
That's the good news - I don't have to try and do it on my own.
God of the universe cares and hears my franctic calls for grace,
He is the Master of the Clean Slate.
the Fresh Start
the New Beginning
the Do Over.
I'm so glad I don't have to start the new year without His
He's there waiting for me to ask for it..
Happy New Year!
