New Beginnings for me!!!  I am very excited to start this new blog and hope that in my musings, blessings and ramblings I might rediscover my excitement for life, and a new passion for life! I sure hope if you are reading this you will come along with me.  I don't think much will be profound, but it will be my new effort to remember what makes me happy. 

I need to begin to dream again too!  Here is a meme I got from FB.

"We have to live
the dream,
not just dream."

Here is a least to a few....I don't dream.  So actually I need to begin to dream.  I guess I use to dream, but I can actually say that whatever I dreamed or thought I wanted, the Good LORD has given to me!  My heart is so full of gratitude for all these things the LORD has provided for me, that I left off dreaming.  What more can I dream about when I have everything?  Yet my life isn't over, so I have to continue to dream, or have a vision to work toward.

I think I like the way the Bible puts it best. 
Prov 29:18 
"Where there is no vision , the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he."

So, I guess in reality, I am content, but not busy.  I am still full of Faith in our LORD and in His Faithfulness, but I'm not active.  I need to do both~  Be happy and Faithful, and be busy and active while on this earth! 

Remember, I am writing my thoughts and half rambling to myself!  LOL  You can listen in!  ;)

One of the things I want to use this blog for, is to tell some stories that will eventually go into a Family Book for my family to have and to hold for the next generations~  This is the personal request from my daughter Donna!  So Donna, I will try my best to write stories from my life and get this book finally together!  I'll try to add a subtitle of Family Book writing. 

It would be nice to have subtitles for different sections of my musings/ramblings and words of encouragement from the LORD's Word~ 

Let me go ahead and say these will be some of my subtitles:

One of the blogs I follow uses different colors to break up her thoughts.  Maybe I'll try that for some fun!

Okay, I'm so nervous about posting this because it has been a while since I've written anything and put my thoughts down on 'paper'!  LOL  Well, no time like the present!

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel 6 that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth. Col 1:3-7
