Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength

For lots of reasons 2009 has been a full on year. About midway through I was reminded of this verse from the Bible that brought me great encouragement and comfort. Whenever I would start to feel the stress rise up in me I would bring it to mind and feel washed with peace:
And as we reach the end of the year and I reflect on what is been, I also must acknowledge what is. As much fun as crafting and presents and good food was this Christmas, there was a big hole in our day. One family member wasn’t able to be with us. They are really quite sick at the moment and had to spend Christmas in hospital. Tomorrow is going to be a big day in our family and if you are a praying person I would so appreciate you upholding my family in your prayers tonight, as I remind myself again the words from James 4:8 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
