Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
~Psalm 84:5

Hello, 2008!

Around here we were all very mature and grown-up while ringing in the New Year.
First we played Monopoly with the Speed Die.
Then we set off firecrackers and let the kiddos run around with fire (sparklers, actually).
Later we played Hide-N-Go Seek outside in the dark w/ walkie-talkies and no flashlights. The fireworks lighting up the sky added to the spooky ambiance. My brother hiding in the shadows and on top of the roof was rather freaky.
By the time Midnight came around we were all tired and the sounds of fireworks going off woke up my niece and freaked her out. So it wasn't a very climatic countdown. But we enjoyed the light show outside, nevertheless.

May God bless you and keep you in this New Year!

Deb, I had to scroll down to make sure I was in the right place. I thought I'd pulled up some strange blog. I like the new look. Happy New Year.
