Grand Rapids friends, our Monday Night Bible Study begins this Monday, January 3rd! We’d love to have you join us! 🙂 AND
if you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly New Year’s Day tradition ~ here’s my New Years post from last year! We’ll be doing the same thing this New Years Day too ~ I can hardly wait! Woo Hoo! Enjoy!!
Happy New Year from our home to yours!!
We hosted a fun, family friendly New Years celebration last night. We had 19 people (kids and adults) enjoying a taco bar, sledding, games, an ice cream sundae bar, tattoo stand and so much more! 🙂 What fun!!
Or here is Benj’s from last year…
For our New Years Day tradition, after we share our “Thank You” page, we take a new piece of paper. On this paper, we write out/draw specific prayer requests for the coming year. For example, this is Benj’s paper for 2009….
For my New Years Day prayers last year, I had written “opportunities to share Jesus with others”. (I just love Him so ~ and want to tell everyone I can!) I had no idea at that time that God would open a door for me to lead a Bible Study of 80 women on Monday nights (and less than a month later, no less)!
God is so faithful, isn’t He?! 🙂
I can’t wait for our special tradition to get started today !! I’ve pulled out the paper and markers, but John just said first I can sneak off to the bookstore for a bit with my Bible, while the kids are still waking up after their late night. Woo Hoo!!
What about for you?? Do you have a special New Years tradition?? Share with us please!! I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
Happy New Year! May your year be filled with much joy, peace, good health, and God’s richest blessings!
Happy New Year Cindy, praying this one is just as blessed as your last!
Great post! Very inspiring! I love any excuse to start again…for another chance…for new beginnings!! Happy New Year!!
What a beautiful idea! Great post. May 2011 bring many blessings for your family. 🙂
Looks and sounds like you had a great party. The New Year's tradition is very cool.Happy New Year to you, Cindy!
Cindy, Happy New Year to you my friend! Getting to know you more and meet you in person is one of my most special blessings of 2010! As for our New Year's plans, our kids are away at Winter Youth Group Camp (a great blessing for them) and sadly I have a terrible cold so my hubby and I will probably spend a quiet evening at home (except for my crazy coughing!). But, God is good and I am anxious to see what He has for us in 2011. So blessed to follow the Lord into the New Year . . . and each new day! Love and a big hug, Jenny C.
