What I learned….

Happy New Year’s Message

Yesterday during the sermon at my church, I heard the following scripture that gave me the strength to see how the new year could be so much better than 2006….

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”


Ephesians 2:8-10
New Living Translation

Things that I am grateful for:

my friends….
my family….
my job…..
my health….
my home….
my church…
but most of all my God – whose an awesome God.


God continues to bless me daily with people and help to get through the most difficult time in my life. As I begin the new year, my challenge is to live a life that God would be proud of. That magnifies his name. That helps others because in that life, I can help myself.

My challenge for you – my friends….

Fall in love with life – you never know when it will drastically change in a blink of an eye.

Inspire everyone – even the ones you don’t get a long with.

Offer hope – it just takes a minute to make a difference in someone’s life.

Live by example – even when it makes you uncomfortable.

May God Bless you all as you begin this new year.


Remember – Brittany lived by the above and showed us how it can change people’s lives in ways we don’t even know or understand! Don’t forget her and what she did for us all. Even in her death.

until later,
