Happy New Year and My Bucket List Too

DH and I rang in the new year at our friends' home -- and somehow we were able to stay awake to see the ball fall. That's quite a feat for us! We enjoyed a delicious meal, good wine, fun games, and lots of chatter.

I pray that your 2012 is full of God's blessings!

This past year I didn't have much time in my creative space, and I haven't posted any art for so long, but I hope that changes in the new year, 'cause I really miss getting sticky and inky!

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

Joy comes in our lives when we have something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. (Let's make that "someone to love and someone to hope for!") Remember the JOY acronym: Jesus, Others, Yourself.

How well God understands us and knows what is best for us at all times.  Ephesians 1:8 TLB

A sense of humor can help you overlook the unattractive, tolerate the unpleasant, cope with the unexpected, and smile through the unbearable.

Smile! Laugh! Enjoy the present. It's God's gift to us!

I've started a 2012 bucket list ... and yes, exercising is on it, as is reading more books, but so are some more really FUN things to do! I'll post about it soon. What's on YOUR bucket list?
