Each Day is a New Beginning

Each Day is a New Beginning

The darkness fades and the dawn appears
A brand new day is here for you

Yesterday’s mistakes are laid to rest
And the Lord’s mercies are fresh and new

Yes, mercy and grace, sufficient for each day
Thank the Lord, bow your head, and humbly begin to pray

Count those blessings, and ask Him for strength
He’ll lead you to still waters where you can freely drink

He is the Living Water so why do we refuse
To drink Him in and be refreshed, and have new tools to use

He supplies our every need, gives us above and beyond all we can ask or even think
Yet some of us are stubborn and refuse to take a drink

He fills us with His Spirit, our comforter and friend
Someone who is with us until the very end

So do not be discouraged…each day is a new beginning
We can bury all those failures and get on the road to winning

He does give us the victory when we run the race with Him
Say good-bye to yesterday and let the new day begin

Because each day is a new beginning!

Six Word Saturday...March 8th 2014

Hi y'all...Happy Saturday to Everyone!  Those are my six words!  :)

It seems like blogging has taken a backseat in my life.  I do miss reading blogs and keeping up here in blogland I thought I would join in on Six Word Saturday today.

I hope that life is treating you well.  I am keeping busy since two of our teenaged grandsons have moved in with us.  One came in October, and the other one in December...and now here it is March already!  I have been enjoying them a lot...and even cooking for them has brought me much joy!  Here's Caleb with Grandpa.

And Will with Grandma

Last night we all went to our 15 year old granddaughter Julia's high school for their yearly talent show.  It was so good, and Julia had a blast singing, dancing and having little parts in the skits.  At the end their last song was "We are Family"...and they got the audience standing up to sing and dance and clap along with them!  This 63 year old grandma and her 68 year old grandpa hubby enjoyed acting young again and joined in with vigor!  :)  "We are brothers and my sisters and me!"  Fun, fun fun!!!

Here's Julia on the right, with her sister Adelynn.

Here's one with our youngest daughter Lonna and all of her kiddos.  Hangin' out with teens keeps ya young!  :)

Here in the Wichita, Kansas area we are watching the Shockers win, win, win!  32 games now without a loss!  Go Shocks!!!!  There is another game this afternoon.  Our boys and grandpa have been watching the action!  Here's a picture of our son-in-law Brad who was the WSU mascot  at one time.  Just thought I would say that as a Shocker grad he is really enjoying all of their victories and so is his wifey Lisa...our oldest daughter, who also went to WSU!  (At all of our family gatherings Brad is the official meet carver!)

I just wanted to pop by to say hello and let you know I am still kickin'! is my niece Sandy's 52nd I wish her a lovely day full of fun surprises !  (Love you so much Sandy Lynn!)

Enjoy your Saturday everyone!
