Welcoming the Expected and Unexpected New Year

Welcome New Year

 It’s interesting to read forecasts for the new year.  I’m predicting it will be what I make of it and how I discern it.  More sensational predictions than usual surround the winter solstice, December 21, 2012.  I’m screening all information through the truth template of the Bible.    No second guessing necessary.
 
I’m grateful for principle guidelines.  So many have none.  I’ll be occupying the same space and fulfilling the same destiny I was called to before the year began.   In spite of expectations others may impose upon me, I’m setting out to accomplish much and grow even more in 2012.  That’s the direction I’m heading, unless God has a meaningful detour planned.  All is up to Him.  I’m grateful it’s not up to me. 
 
How is your 2012 optimism?  My front door is open to wherever He leads.  Now, that’s exciting!
