What is it.....

.....about a brand new year.....

.....that makes us feel like we've been given a fresh, new start.....a clean slate???
Do you find yourself wanting to get things in order in your house?  Maybe give a room a fresh coat of paint....or do some de-cluttering.  I've actually gotten Pappy interested in doing a bit of straightening up in our living room.  I know....can't believe that one myself....but I convinced him of how much neater and better it would look if we just moved this here and that there and put all that "stuff"  behind doors so at least  it wouldn't be seen.  So...he's had me on Craig's List looking for something affordable. 
Maybe I'll share some before and afters of that little project over on Wise Old Owl.
And...have you noticed how all the stores are running specials on those plastic totes? 
Instead of getting rid of stuff....they are tempting us to just store it away!!!

But...what I'm getting at....is that every single day we've been given a fresh new start....not just because it's a brand new year.  We don't have to wait until January 1st of a new year....or the first Monday of the new year....0r even Monday of next week....we can start fresh and new every single day!! 

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT)
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
