It takes about a week into a new year before my mind catches up to the fact!
Christmas is over and we had a wonderful time with the kids and with my mom, the handmade Christmas went over very well and everyone was pleased with the Heirloom gifts, we had great weather for our journey and it is good to be home!
It is so nice to trust in the sovereignty of God, I don't even want to contemplate what kind of place the world must be for someone who doesn't have that confidence. My mother gave me a lovely devotional book for Christmas by Billy Graham
called 'Unto the Hills", in it Rev Graham had a quote from John Baillie -
it is a perfect reflection for a new year especially one with so much perceived uncertainty - God has a plan! So this will end my first
post of 2012.
"The Bible indicates that the future is in God's hands.If it were in our hands, we would make a mess of it. The future is not in the devil's hands, for then he would lead us into destruction. The future is not at the mercy of any historical determinism leading us blindly forward, for then life would be without meaning. But the future is in the hands of One who is preparing something better than eye hath seen or ear heard, or has entered into the heart of man to conceive."
