Chapter 12, Page 27, Book 08

When your nervous network
Becomes a tangle mess,
Just close your eyes in silent prayer
And ask the Lord to bless
Each thought that you are thinking,
Each decision you must make.
As well as every word you speak
And every step you take
Helen Steiner Rise

Life is a book in volumes three--

The past, the present, and the yet-to-be.

The past is written and laid away,
The present we're writing every day,
And the last and best of volumes three
Is locked from sight -- God keeps the key.
Author Unknown

It is almost time to start a new book with lots of blank pages and chapters to be read and I’m going to try my best to fill those pages with even more good things than I have in the past.

I am really looking forward to having a fresh start and saying good bye to this old eyar of 2008. This book of mine has been filled with many blessings and a few sorrows. Maybe the new one will find a mixture of both too, but we have to find our balance in all those things and try to remember only the ones
that made us smile.

Thank the good Lord the future is hidden away. We do not know what pleasures or pains lay ahead for each of us, but we are reminded that today is what counts for all of us.


The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little, soon-forgotten charities of a kiss or smile, a kind look, a heart-felt compliment, and the countless infinitesimals of pleasurable and genial feeling.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

A new year is beginning to peak through
softly beautiful and different like new falling snow,
each day unique and shaped just for you.
Your life adding something as each day does grow.
My wish for your new year is beauty
and softness with surprises thrown in for delight.
Love for each day bringing happiness to you,
making your life a scene of sparkle and shining sunlight.

What lovely sentiments. I think it is a good thing the future is hidden from us. So many things wouldn't ever be attempted if we knew we wouldn't be successful. I wish you a Happy New Year with many more to come. I so enjoy your blog.
