It is a new month, a New Year, and new beginnings. I am getting rid of the empty boxes, bottles, wrappings, and cards. The festivities are over. It is time to recover
The Christmas preparations take their toll on ones strength. One needs to be super strong to receive friends, family and give generously.
Did you know that joy gives one strength. I was going through a difficult time and who does not have them, when I heard a voice say to me “The joy of The Lord is your strength.”
I built up my reserves of strength when I was in Canada in November. I enjoyed seeing friends, making new ones and receiving love and kindness. I enjoyed the beauty of Vancouver and the Rockies. We enjoyed the snow.
I particularly enjoy seeing the big trains at Whiterock as they trundle past and the whistle blows. It is music to my ears.
