Well I'm certainly not starting the New Year out right, am I? But I couldn't let the first day of 2009 go by without at least a short post. We had a fantastic New Year's Eve at our church. A great service with lots of favorites, mixed with testimonies and praises. Then a wonderful sermon that God used to remind me that nothing is impossible with Him. Having faced some huge hurdles in 2008, and knowing there are more ahead this year ... well, I definitely needed that reminder. Then the service ended with us all standing and joining hands around the auditorium while several of the men prayed.
After the service we all trooped to the fellowship hall for food and games, which we played until just before midnight. Then we spent time in prayer as the old year ended and the new year began. Can't think of a more perfect way to spend it!
Happy New Year, friends.
