Better days…

I was told the older I get – the faster time will go.  I didn’t think life could go any faster, but I find that indeed it does!  Today we are on the brink of starting another new year.  A time to look back and reflect on our accomplishments, our disappointments, our joys, our sorrows, our dreams, our failures…everything that’s wrapped up into this thing we call life.  I wish I could say that I achieved everything that I hoped for this year, or that it was without sadness, but I can’t and that’s ok.  There isn’t anyone alive that doesn’t have trials in their life from time to time.  My prayer for you this year is that you learn from them and rely on the One that can turn them into something you never imagined.  Like this blog…it’s given me an avenue of healing I never expected.  Thank you for taking the time to check it out.  If it touches just one person and let’s them know they are not alone, it’s worth every risk of putting myself out there.  The pastor at our church on Sunday asked if we were willing to “Stand Out”. This has been my step to stand out on what I believe God is calling me to do…even though it’s been really scary. I pray that this year you find what God is calling you to and you take the step that He is asking you to take.  I promise He will be with you.  And if 2013 brought you hardship, I pray that this year brings you better days…

“Better Days”

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
Cause I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And designer love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
I need someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
And the one poor child who saved this world
And there’s 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
So take these words
And sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
Cause tonight’s the night the world begins again
Happy New Year everyone!  Love each other…because love matters!
