For some reason, the older I get, the less comfortable it feels to wish others a "Happy New Year" .... it seems a bit superficial.
"Happy" does not seem to be a realistic word to use in today's world.
So, instead, using the words and insights of a most gifted writer, Roy Lessin, in his book, "Meet Me in the Meadow," I will share what he wrote, that spoke to my heart today;
"May you be blessed with;
~ Comfort as you mourn:
~ Peace when you are troubled;
~ Grace when you are needy;
~ Courage when you are afraid;
~ Strength when you are weary;
~ Faith when you are doubting;
~ Hope when you are uncertain;
~ Tenderness when you need to be assured;
~ Wisdom when you need to know the way."
Yes, that is what I wish for you at the beginning on another year.

I have so enjoyed my past year in blogland.  Many are the times that I walk past my computer and think that possibly I should do a new post, and the well is dry:)  It is most gracious of you all to visit this blog to see what "justalittlesomethingfor you" may be.  You visit, sometimes you comment, and you send encouraging emails that continue to be a real blessing in my daily life. 

Blogging offers fun and inspiration just like a new magazine does for me.  Sometimes when I have spare moments of time, I find it most fascinating to visit all my favorites and find new places of beauty and creativity.  My list keeps growing and I am so thankful for all that I learn through my blogging journeys.

 So to each and everyone of you, thank you.  I feel so blessed!

Wishing you "joy" in the New Year ahead!

Thank you, Judy... beautiful words, saying so much more than Happy New Year. I wish you the same back ... may God's grace be sufficient for every day and give you joy. I give you one of my favorite verses.. Psalm 84:11
