****A Healthy Blessed New Year****

I want to Start the New Year off with 2 inspirational readings one is a Psalm from our Lord filled with His glorious promises, and the other is one that we tend to forget.

I pray for all those whose trials may seem heavy, yet the Lord gave us 1Corinthians 10:13, followed up with Romans 8:28. I pray we remember to wear all our armor so we can be a vehicle for Him to light our paths through the dark.

For those who lost a loved one and suffered tragedy, know the Lord is still and has been and always will be by our side. May we all stay humble, ask for the Holy Spirit's discernment, and try and be as Christ like as possible so we can fulfill our purpose. We lift this and all prayers up in the blood and name of Jesus amen. God Bless.  The below scripture speaks to our Eternal being and below this will be a reminder for our carnal being, while trying not to be deceived we can recall both

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel[a] of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He guards all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
A thought to start the new year love and hugs
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question.
Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.
In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”
She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night.
 Remember to put the glass down!

Safe travels for you and all you love Patricia xoxox

********The Perfct Tea********

The Perfect Tea
If I could sit and have "High Tea",
what a wondrous experience it would be.
I'd invite those I truly love,
and we'd sit and talk with our Lord above.
About our home and what's to come,
and sit about like close old chums.
For our Savior loves to talk and share,
and oh, how we need to show we care,
For this tea could never have taken place,
Without our Father's loving Grace....
