HAPPY 2016

Hello Homespun Friends…and WELCOME BACK to my original blogspot! I hope you will bear with me as I try to find the right format for my blog. Over the past few years, I have tried several free and paid blog sites but I find that this one works very well for me.

I want to wish all of you a HAPPY 2016! Throughout the past year, my husband and I have gained 2 new grandchildren and gained both a son-in-law and daughter-in-law, whom we love. Like most of you all, we have had some wonderful days and some hard days.  We ended the year with my husband required immediate and unexpected eye surgery on December 31st.  He is recovering now and we are praying that his sight will be fully restored with some rest and healing time.

Throughout it all, we give praise to the Lord, for he is good! I am reminded of the Scriptures:

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.  ~1 Thessalonians 5:18

Even when we can’t understand the command, we must obey.  The Lord desires our praises of thanksgiving, since this shows our love and trust in him! For the new year, I pray we all will experience the goodness of God and that we will be obedient to him in giving him praise in every circumstance of life. After all, we know he is working everything for our good.
