I do believe. I believe that I have been blessed by the goodness and graciousness of so many of you this year. It has been a blessing to hear from you through comments and emails. So many of you have shared your hearts, life and feelings with me and I just want to thank you. Know that each one of you mean a great deal to me and I thank you. Thank you for your friendship. I believe that we all share a common thread in life and these threads weave us all together in one way or another.

I believe in you, yes I do. Just know that I think of each one of you each day and pray that life will be kind to you. We all have different things that happen to us in the course of a lifetime, but for me, right now, I am thankful for life and the gifts I have been given. I believe in the goodness of our Heavenly Father and that faith will take us in the direction that we need to be lead.

Peace to you. May you find JOY in the day.

Dear Becky,
I believe too!
Thank you for your blog and your hopeful words. God bless you.
Your words are "landed" in northern Germany, directly in my heart:-)
But because of that (that I´m German), I can´t express in English, what I feel when I read your words. Have a peace- and joyful christmas
