"Go back?” he thought. “No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!” So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter."
~ The Hobbit
As I was lying in bed after our New Year's eve celebration, thinking about the year to come, all those days....and I remembered these verses I had posted on facebook earlier in the day and realized that the Lord is going with us into 2012, and will give new mercies every morning.....If we have His presence with us that is what is most important.
"And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name."
I hope you all have a blessed new Year! We're enjoying our last day of vacation, and tomorrow will make the very long drive back to South Carolina and real life, you know alarm clocks, work....that kind of real life:-) Have a good Monday everyone!
