Welcome to 2011

Seek the LORD, and his strength:
seek his face evermore.
Psalm 105:4


I will bless the LORD at all times: 
his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Psalm 34:1

Oh that men would praise 
the LORD for his goodness,
 and for his wonderful works 
to the children of men!
 Psalm 107:31


I do not know what the new year will bring, but I do know for certain, God "will never leave thee nor forsake thee" and he will protect me as "The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me" and everyday He will  be "my strength and my shield".  Through Him I will find comfort and courage. . . . I pray that you do to.  Blessings.

Hebrew 13:5-6 and Psalm 28:7


  1. Those are beautiful verses to start the year out with, Jo. Sometimes I think it would/could be fun to know what the new year will bring... but I know that some of it would probably scare us to death - God really knew best when He created us without the ability to see into the future!! :)

  2. Happy New Year Jo~ It has been such a pleasure visiting you and enjoying your visits to me. I pray that you have a blessed year drawing closer to the Lord and being a blessing to others. Thank you for your encouragement and kindness.

    Happy Happy New Year!

  3. Thank you Jo,

    You are a real blessing to us all.
    May your coming year be wonderful!
    joy in Christ..Trish

  4. Lovely verses Jo and your comments at the end were a blessing as well.

    I want to thank you for your beautiful blog and for all the lovely comments you leave on mine.

    Wishing you and yours a Blessed and Happy New Year!

  5. Jo,

    Well, it's not quite January 1st in my part of the world as I type this. However, it will be approaching in just a few hours.

    I like your attitude towards the New Year - placing your hopes and trust in Christ. Oh, how I year to have that kind of faith!

    At any rate, I am glad that I found your blog this year. It's been encouraging as well as inspiring. I hope that our blogging friendship continues to grow during the New Year.

    Take great care, Dear Sister. :)
