HERE WE GO AGAIN!

HERE WE GO - 2019 LOOK OUT! by Valerie Hansen

A new calendar year is upon us. That division of days, of years, is man's idea. God, the infinite time-keeper, gives us newness of life daily. The instant we open our eyes we know we are about to begin another blessed day and the older I get, the more it astonishes me. 
Apparently Charles Schulz felt the same because his work lends itself so perfectly to the truth that I embrace. Each and every second of our lives is precious. Looking back, I can pick out some of the special moments, yet I know there are many more that I have overlooked simply because I am human. Even in the darkest times, God is there. He gives us more than life, He gives us hope, and love, and joy despite circumstances. Yes, it can be hard to see sometimes, but that doesn't mean it's gone. Dig deep. Trust much. Call out to God. Praise Jesus. And live the life he has given you. It's the best gift anyone has ever gotten.
I have a new book coming in Feb. 2019 and several more after that. God willing.

  3. Love the visual of jumping from 2018 to 2019.
    You also made me think... Is the division of days really man's idea. We have the six days of creation. The Bible says on the seventh day to rest. I've sat on many lessons, though, that talked about whether Genesis' day was 24 hours. Gives ya something to think about, eh?
