Happy New Year!

I've been too grumpy to blog the last couple of weeks, and at some point I'll write through it but not now (maybe never in a public forum like this).

I am looking forward to a new year. I'm one of those people who make resolutions/goals/lists of things that I like to cross off. They give me direction, even if I do veer off now and then. I like Mondays, the first day of the month, the first day of class, watching for seedlings to come out of the earth, really any kind of new beginning. Beginnings are exciting.

Brownie points if you can tell me what's happening in this picture.

Normally Christmas break is my favorite two weeks out of the year. It's just that I can't see the outline right now, and even though I have faith in the Master Outliner . . . it is easy to find fault with myself. I'm thankful for Jesus and what He has made possible through His life and sacrifice. The following verses come from my favorite chapter in the Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi, chapter 2.

24But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who aknoweth all things.
25aAdam bfell that men might be; and men care, that they might have djoy.
26And the aMessiah cometh in the fulness of time, that he maybredeem the children of men from the fall. And because that they are credeemed from the fall they have become dfree forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the elaw at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given.

I thank you for your friendship and hope 2011 is a wonderful year for all of you.


  1. Happy New Year to you, too, Myrna. I'm sorry the past few weeks have been rough for you. May 2011 bring you and your family many blessings and many tender mercies from the Lord.

    Thanks for sharing those verses with us.

  2. I usually write my way out of things, too, and not always on my blog...though sometimes it's a good venue for such things.

    Hope 2011 is a good one for you!


  3. Happy New Year, to you, too. May you have an amazing 2011! Your new avatar is fantastic, and I hope this next week--the beginning of a new year--is more cheerful for you. (And I like lists too :) )
