Happy new year!
Another year begins and I wonder what it will bring. This past year has been very stressful so I am glad to put it behind me!
Last January I posted about reading a book where the house was named Rest and Be Thankful. Ever since I read that book, which was years ago I have thought it would be fun to give that name to our home. Our home is a just a standard 3 bedroom 2 bath red brick ranch and is certainly much too ordinary to have a name, but name it I plan to do. So today I bought some wood to paint a sign for over the front door and our home is officially named Rest And Be Thankful.
I just love the whole idea of rest and be thankful. That's what I want for my life this year and that's what I want for anyone who steps inside our house.
Wouldn't it be easy to rest and be thankful in this room? It belongs to my new blogging friend, Carolyn who lives in Prince Edward Island. Her home and garden are absolutely wonderful and I know you will love visiting her. Tell her I sent you!
Today is Thursday and I usually have a thankful thursday post but today I'm not listing anything. Instead I thought I would try to have an attitude of thankfulness all through the day.
Jesus said, "Come to me all you who are heavy laden and weary and you will find rest for your souls." That's where I'm going to find my rest today and I'm thankful I can do that.
Hope you enjoy this first day of the new year!
