Welcome 2008!

Happy New Year from our family to yours!!! This year, we rang in the New Year a lot quieter than we usually do as a few of our usual New Year's Eve guests opted to stay home or weren't in town. We missed you guys! Nevertheless, we partied all night --- finally calling it a night at about 1:30am New Year's Day! Even the kids managed to stay up. We had a fun evening just being with family and friends.

As we all welcome 2008 together, may these Bible verses from my devotions today be as living and as real to you as they are to me.

"As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
---Joshua 1:5b-6, 8-9 NIV

"Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you."
---Joshua 3:5 NIV

"The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him."
---Lamentations 3:25 NIV
