It has been a pleasant, soul-feeding day; not to mention the body feeding as well. Oven fried pork chops, black-eyed peas, cabbage, turnip greens, cornbread and for some sweet tea; for yours truly unsweetened and I have actually grown to prefer it — most of the time. And with a quick ‘have a little talk with JESUS’ prayer I resisted the urge for Dunkin Donuts this evening.
Speaking of ‘have a little talk with JESUS’ praying, I am determined to do more of that this year as evidenced by this evening – It works!
My Little Girl has a great guideline for the New Year. She posted it to Facebook; I’m borrowing it.
2014 is going to be a great year! Live a life of joy every day!! — feeling hopeful.
And she is smart enough to know that every day is not going to lend its self to happiness; but she is also wise enough to know we can CHOOSE to retain the JOY of the LORD.
John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

We have covenanted to remind one another. 🙂

Some pots and pans are calling. Happy Day 2 of 2014!!
