Happy New Year!

In just a few minutes 2008 will be over and 2009 will begin. I'm sitting at my computer and listening to fireworks outside and praying nothing catches on fire with the drought we have been in.

2009 should be an interesting year to say the least, what with a new president, the economy problems, wars and rumors of wars. As the sun sets on 2008 and rises on 2009 I pray for our country and its leadership, for the economy to straighten itself out without much more governmental interference, I pray that we all are able to keep our jobs and homes and put food on our tables. I pray for our troops both at home and abroad. I pray for peace in Israel. I pray for innocent lives lost in battle. I thank God for all that I have been blessed with - that includes you reading my blog.

Happy New Year!
