Happy New Year!

Hello friends, Happy new Year to you!  I can’t believe it is 2009, but I am actually glad 2008 is over.  How about you?  We are still visiting family here in the Greene household.  Down in Florida today.  How is it that too much driving, lack of sleep, fighting colds and runny noses, petty arguments with spouse or child, and overeating….always equals a fabulous time?!  Really – we love it and realize it is all worth it! I love the holidays.  I am sad they are almost over but excited about this year.  A friend recently sent me a text reminding me that this year would be a year of “Crossing over”  as in Joshua crossing over the Jordan into the promise land!  I mean – I hope that encourages you as much as it did me.  Step out in faith, trust God, walking through the water or actually in the water will be the hardest part -especially when everyone around you may be saying “be practical, have a safety net, maybe you should try another way,  etc…etc…” Believe me Godly, sound counsel is always needed and we can’t do this on our own.  BUT when you know God has told you to do something, even when it seems or is difficult, even if some around you think you are crazy:)  it might just be your ” crossing over” time.  I believe it is for me, I am excited about what God is doing and I will set up a remembrance.  Just like Joshua did with the 12 stones, saying “Look what God has done!”  It may take all year or more but I know God is up to something and the journey will be worth it!  Get your backpack on, let’s get on this journey jump in the water, watch Him move some mountains or even some seas for us!    Blessings, Mel
