Happy New Year!!!

on Christmas eve

For the second year ever I’m going to celebrate New Years with my son, for the second year (if I’m lucky) he doesn’t know about the celebration and the fireworks πŸ˜‰ If I get it my way he’s in bed by 9 pm (that’s late for him, by the way). Next year I might wake him up for the firework, but we’ll see!!

I’m, on the other hand, going to be awake the whole time. We’re going to visit some good friends of ours for dinner and MT’s going to spend the night there since I’m going to lead a midnight service in our church. I look forward to it on one hand and do not want to leave the others on the other hand, but I have to….. They’ll do great and tonight I’m going to have my whole bed to myself without a tiny little boy taking up most of the room πŸ˜‰ – oh, yea, I’m going to miss him!! But by breakfast time I’ll see him again, so no reason to worry!

With a few photos from our Christmas I wish you all the very best for the New Year and Gods blessing!!

Decorating our tree Opening gifts - this from his uncle with family a little bit of fake smile MT on the side..

And give you the most hopeful words for the year to come (this my sermon is about…)

Praise the LORD, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

Psalm 103:1-4.8-12

Sorry…again

Sorry for not writing and not reading lately, my son and my work have consumed me and my time. Hope I’ll get the hang of it soon, I miss blogging and reading what you write on a regular basis (not every once a while). Hope Christmas was good and will (in case I might not return in time…) wish you a blessed new year!!!

Hugs from me

and no; haven’t forgotten you at all πŸ˜‰

  9. Buy the last of the packages for MT and friends close by. Wrap them and deliver them πŸ˜€
