Grateful for a New Year for New Opportunities

Sharon

A new calendar year. Thank You, Lord, for being with us through this past very difficult year. Be with us in this new year which will also more than likely be challenging. Thank You, Lord, that I have You in my life to sustain me and help me. Thank You for both the joys and the challenges of this past year, for it is through these things I have grown as a person and become more dependent on You, Lord.

Today was a mixture of joys and frustrations. You, know. Lord, the frustrating incident I faced first thing this morning. Grant me wisdom and patience in that scenario, Lord. Then when the car was completely dead when we wanted to go away this noon, that seemed to be the final straw. Thank You that my Son, Troy, was able to put the battery charger on the car and that it started later, Lord. Thank You that this happened at home and that I was not stranded somewhere else. Lord, I know so little about these things. Grant me increasing knowledge and confidence in these things.

Thank You, Lord, for us being able to experience a good day the rest of the day. Thanks for a good combination birthday party for my husband and granddaughter today at our son's house. It was a good and joyful afternoon to be with family.
