2015... HAPPY

Happy... new year... new start... fresh leaf... do over... resolution... fresh start... new day... begin again... forgive and forget... goal setting... new vision... new provision... healthy eating... exercising... cleaning... organizing... Bible reading....

Whatever the new year means to you, I pray that you will seek God in a new and more committed way.  His mercies are new every morning.  New can happen any morning, any moment with God.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Every day is your new day. 

Every day is my new day.
Every day is the Lord's new day.

Let's seize it.



  1. I like this post. His mercies are new every morning not just on Jan 1.

    hope you have a Happy new year.

    I see you do THM, I was doing it before our car accident and plan to get back on it tomorrow.

  2. Happy New Year! I am always looking for those kind hearted Christians here at the blog. I lost my job in November and at my age it is difficult to find decent work. I would appreciate prayer. Have a beautiful day and enjoy the new year. Blessings, Anne

  3. Happy New Year to you! I pray you and your family has a wonderful year.

  6. I have a sampler in my kitchen (gift from my sister) which is as perfect for New Year's Day as it is for every other day. it says" Oh God of new beginnings and second chances, Here I am__Again"

    How lucky we are!

  8. Hello Rhonda,
    I love the name of your blog.

    Thank God that His mercies are new every morning. I'd hate to have to wait a year in between.

    Yes Rhonda. I've been off plan for awhile, but I'm planning to get back on plan with THM this week. I've got to do inventory and get the right foods in the house. Until then, I'm going to do the best I can.

    Are you well after your accident?

  13. Hello Laura!

    Happy New Year to you!

    I love this post! Yes, every day is a New day!!! And it's Jesus's day too. We should never forget that. He is with us each and every day...

    I love it!

    I hope you are doing well. Its been very cold here and we all have been sick. So, we are staying cozy trying to recover from the craziness of the holidays and recovering from being ill for weeks.


  14. Hi Amy,
    So good to hear from you. It's cold here, too. I got sick the day after Christmas, dosed up on vitamin C, got better, then worse Saturday. Still fighting the cold and sore throat. Winning though!
    Get well in Jesus' Name!

    I still have my tree up. I haven't felt like doing the work of taking it down yet. Soon though.
    Have a good week!

  15. I love that we get a new start, every time, every day with our God :) Happy 2015!

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
