Each night during our walk, my dog Ozzie and I number the stars, and each star is like counting off a blessing or message from Father. I like to record them here.
I love this time of year, because I’m a goal-setter, and January is a fresh start. This year holds all kinds of promise, and I’ve really relished the opportunity to evaluate myself and identify areas where I’d like to make progress. Look for a post with this year’s resolutions to come soon.
As I’ve considered the idea of a fresh start in the new year, I’ve felt keenly grateful for the opportunity to start anew in other areas of my life as well. I love my Heavenly Father for lots of reasons, but one of the biggest is that He forgives and provides endless opportunities for fresh starts. I’m so blessed by His grace and patience with my near-constant mistakes!
