Happy New Year!

I haven't written a new blog post in a long time....partly because I couldn't think of anything to write about...but mostly because I had forgotten my password for signing in.

It's a simple fix, but I was too lazy to figure it out--until today.

I know you all are celebrating out there in the blog must have been hard waiting so long to 'hear' from me again. (I just giggled to myself, realizing that *I* am the blog world that I refer to...and thus, I WILL celebrate to hear from me again!)

During my silence, I did occasionally visit my blog, and read over some of my ancient posts. Not to revel in my awesomeness (*ahem*), but rather to reflect on some of my previous thoughts and discern whether I still stood by those words. God has this neat way of having words spill out of my mouth (or type out of my fingers) that touch me over and over again.

I don't know if anyone else has ever had the experience of giving advice that never passed through your mind before it exited your mouth....and then thinking, "Wow, those are words I should really apply to myself!"

Sometimes that happens with my blog posts, too. I write it out in a long stream of unedited thoughts (aside from spell-check), only to read it over and see that God was sending ME a message--through my OWN words!

When this happens, it confirms my belief that the Bible is the inspired word of God. Because I have experienced how it works in my own life. 'Man' will always have arguments as to why the Bible is invalid for them...until they live it themselves.

God bless you all in 2012!
