Happy New Year! It is wierd to think that 2007 is already over and I have to start writing ’08 on my dates now. Every year I go through the same sentiments…where did the year go? I have never been one who is big on New Years Resolutions, but there are definately things that I would like to accomplish this upcoming year. I have been told that 2008 represents “new beginnings”, so I want to put that into action in my life.

The new year is also a time of reflection on the past year and how far I’ve come. I celebrated the night in downtown Cape Town, where it was full of excitement and action. It was almost “New Yorkish”, and I was taken back in memories to a couple of years ago when I spent the night in Times Square. There were millions of people, a street parade, dancing, vendors selling everything possible, carnival rides, and the vibe of the new year. We walked around and just soaked it all in (until I could not walk anymore with my new boots on). We met people from all over the world…England, Israel, Africa, Australia, USA….I just love that! It was then that I was in awe of all the wonderful things in my life, and all the places I have been to spend New Years….Michigan, New York, Arizona, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town….just to name a few. I am really so blessed!

So as this new year begins I want to take a moment and just say, “wow! God really is good!” He has brought me out of many storms in my life and into the most amazing bessings!

Happy 2008!!!!
