Day 1

The problem with writng EVERY day is that I don't always feel like I have a lot to say.  I suppose that's why it will be good for me, force me to dig deep and all that.  Actually it's not so much that I have nothing to say as it is that I don't know what I want to say that I also want other people to read. 

Right now, I have two thoughts going on in my head.  The first is "Look I have now kept my New Year's Resolution for one whole day isn't that wonderful."

Secondly, as I write, I can hear Aaron on the baby monitor.  He's telling the boys the story of Moses and the burning bush, and he's telling them how God heard the cries of the Israelites enslaved in Egypt, how God hears us and He loves us.  I am struck by the beauty of it.  I wonder what they think, those little boys, hearing for the first time (or at least not remembering if they've heard it before).  I wonder what they think about God.  I wonder if they really know yet that He's real.  I think Malachi does.  Recently he had been complaining to his grandma that his leg hurt, and when she asked him about it another time, he said that it was all better because God noticed him.  God noticed that he was hurting and He healed him.  It's nice when God notices you...and He does a lot more than we think.  There have been times I have felt like He had forgotten about me...but He didn't.  He noticed me.  He noticed that I felt forgotten too.  He is really always working.  One of my favorite verses is Philippians 1:6, "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."  I'm glad to know that.
