Blessings and happiness to you in the new year before us, a year full of promise and possibility. Imagine the new things before us!
Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV
The Garden in Delight blog closes for the month of January – join me in cleaning out closets and preparing taxes. Sounds dreary, I know! Yet let us take a month to get matters in order; we’re mostly indoors anyway. Soon enough the sweet airs of spring will brush our faces with gentle warming, beckoning us outside, and we will be free to garden again!
I am making everything new! Revelation 21:5 NIV
Praise our God who moves forward and teaches us to look to the future with hope and excitement. It is His Way that through snow and storms comes a season of flowers and singing.
See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come
Song of Songs 2:11-12 NIV
