As I look to the anticipation and excited of a new year, I would like the word "Follow" to describe 2009. I want to follow wherever the Lord leads this year. I don't want to miss out on what He has for me this year.

I got this idea from my friend Kim. Go see what her word is for 2009. What is your word for this year?

By the way, I am so proud of myself as I just figured out how to link a webpage to my text. ;)

Happy New Year! May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His face shine upon you this year.
