What's in store?

Potty training, for one, Ella is almost three, it is probably time to try...again.

Puppy training, Simon is cute and sweet, but he doesn't have the best manners.

For certain, there will be the everyday ordinary stuff.

Even more for certain, will be the unexpected stuff.

I don't know what is in store for this year, but my life is in the same Hands that hold the stars in place. (Thanks Elisabeth Elliot for that favorite word picture.)

Psalm 138:8
The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me;
Your steadfast love endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of Your hands.

Most certainly, because it says in His Word, He will fulfill His purpose for me, and He will love me when I fail, because His love is steadfast and endures forever.

I don't feel prepared for a new year, it came too quickly this time. But He holds the stars and He holds me.
