The Painting: Since we spent yesterday at the Tink's house and I heard my daughter sing "you are my Sunshine" 100 plus times...I had to post sunflowers for the second of January. Look below and see if you don't agree.
Here is our Tink in her COZY COUPE:
The Thought: The new year brings new thoughts and new adventures...but yet the old year still has things happening around you and in your life. While you eagerly anticipate the joy of the new this day, you probably have much of the old tugging away at you.
Have you ever gotten yourself into something while really "heartfully" trying to help someone? I am there and have hit the wall. Examining the situation I know I can only trust God is going to see me through it because I don't have the desire or strength to go the journey. It is one of those New Years Realizations of "I screwed up my life trying to help someone else, and I am hurting myself and my own family." To abandon the ship at this point would be devastating to many involved; I must trust and go forward.
I believe in my heart of hearts when you make a commitment you stay the course. I also know in my life of experience, the wise person knows when to back away. God gives us wisdom and it has come time to pray about several decisions.
As you venture into this new year, search and clean out your heart and mind of clutter and unusable stress that causes bad health. Start anew and begin again. Focus on "being" and not "doing". As my daughter shared with me today... JOY JOY JOY
J Jesus first O Others next Y you last.
