It’s New Years Eve

And it’s Kara’s Birthday!!!
My granddaughter, Kara, has a birthday today! She is P7240063-1now eleven (11) years  old. She’s an exceptional person, who is very intelligent and very creative, as well as being so pretty. Granddaddy wishes her a very happy birthday. We’ll be going over to celebrate with her at 2:00 PM this afternoon. I know we’ll be having a great time. 

(Note this picture of Kara was taken by Kevin & Lesley during her family vacation trip last summer.)

Another New Year
vuurwerk59Yes, it is New Years Eve, again. It seems like the older I get the faster time goes. Now we will be starting another new year. It will be 2009 in a few more hours.

It’s time to think about your resolutions for the new year. I think there are two basic types of resolutions you can make for yourself.

  1. The first type is that which you plan to do in your own strength and with the help of maybe others. This might include losing weight, doing more exercise, learning a new skill, etc. You could write these down with pen and paper.

    Some on the Most Popular New Years Resolutions are listed on this government web site. It also includes links to help you get started.

  1. The second type of resolutions might be what you resolve to accomplish for God and with God’s help. These resolutions would be made in God’s presence and with His guidance, and they would represent your vows to God. These would be written on your heart. 

    You could get help on these by reading your Bible, meditating on what you read, and through time alone in prayer.
Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
You may be on the right track, but remember, if you just sit there, you’ll get run over.

Quote of the Day
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up
late on New Year's Eve.
Middle age is when you're forced to.

Joke of the Day

A man at an auction sale started bidding for a parrot. The bidding went higher and higher, but finally the man bought the bird. Then he realized that he didn't even know if it could talk, so he asked the auctioneer.

"Of course it can talk," he replied. "Who do you think was bidding against you?"
