New Years's blessings!


We are going out of town tomorrow to spend the evening with our friends and family! We are staying in a local hotel...it will be like a mini vacation for us!
I am looking forward to what the new year will bring. In spite of how the "economy" looks...I see how God has continued to provide for us, His had is on His own. I want to be in the place He wants me to be in...do what He wants me to do...say what He wants me to say...see what I am supposed to see. It comes right down to being obedient really. The Bible says that "Obedience is better than sacrifice"....I want His perfect will for my life!! That may mean giving up things that are no longer beneficial to me....but I purpose to be obedient to His call.
I pray that this year is a new of great favor and flourishing for you and yours...get in a place to hear what the Lord is saying to you...let Him speak to you in His word...be still and know that HE is God. He is directing our steps...yield to His hand and watch what He does in this coming year!!!
God's promises and blessings in abundance to you and yours...in Jesus' name!
Till next year!!! xo

Hey Mindy!

So blessed to have you stop by and join Fresh Oil Today! I so appreciate your kind comment and so glad to meet new bloggy friends!

I love your site and all of your vintage images just calm my soul! I live in Az where everything is so rustic, brown, brown and uh, brown. I must say though, the mountain town I live in has many historic victorian homes that are just beautiful. I guess in the early rancher days the cowboys wives insisted on a little of the finer things and those pioneers built such lovely victorians!!

I'm so blessed by your New Year's blessings! post. My heart echo's every word that you said. "I want to be in the place He wants me to be in....do what He wants me to do...say what He wants me to say.....see what He wants me to see....My heart says YES LORD!!

I'll be stopping by often!

Sweet Blessings!
Jackie
