A New Year – Poems, Prayers and Promises

Footpath Roberto Verzo via Compfight

It’s almost a New Year and I can sense so many changes on the horizon not only in our world but in me, my home and my family.

Life gets crazy sometimes and it’s hard to make sense of what’s up or down. There are so many distractions, news stories and bits of information coming at me from all sides, I hardly know what to place my attention on or believe. But then, I remember a song and it settles me and puts everything back on track.

Life is what I make it and it starts from the inside and flows out. If I can remember that in this New Year, it will be okay.

God bless you and . . .

Happy New Year!

  1. Love John Denver. Dear Pat, life is certainly what you make it, and you make it beautiful. No matter what you are dealing with, you always encourage and bless others so much with your wisdom, courage, honesty and heartfelt sentiments. You have a truly beautiful soul. Happy New Year to you too my dear friend, God bless you in every way. With much love and a great big new year hug…Sherri 🙂 <3 xoxo PS I adore your header…. 🙂

    • Thank you, Sherri. I like him, too. John Denver has been an inspiration to me in so many ways, down through the years, and it helps that he left his footprints of spirit and legacy nearby in these Rocky Mountains.

      So true in what you say about our lives — it is what we make of it. Your kind words mean a lot and go a long way for encouragement to me — thank you, my friend! Wishing the same for you and yours this New Year. God bless. xxoo

      (P.S. — so glad you like the new header photo. It was awhile ago when we used to take the grandsons up to a small mountain town (Como, CO) for fireworks on the 4th of July. It always evokes warm memories of good times.)

      • Thank you my dear friend…and what great memories your header photo evokes. Precious family time indeed. Bless you, God be with you in all things and I hope 2017 brings you everything your heart desires… <3 xoxo

        • Aw, thank you, Sherri. That header photo of hubby and the grandsons does evoke warm feelings in me and I’m happy to hear that it may stir fond memories in others as well. Time and family are precious and I’m thankful for them and more to come in 2017. I wish the same for you, my friend, that all your heart’s desires will be finally realized and more. God bless.

          • More to come indeed…the best is yet to come, as my hubby often likes to remind me! Thank you dear Pat…we will walk together through the coming days as we press through for our hearts’ desires 🙂 God bless & much love… xoxo

I would love to hear from you. . .thank you for stopping by.
