The Day Before The Last Day of 2017


Time is a ticking

as it never stops.

Now is the time

when we all get

introspective

and look back at the past year~

the good times

&

the not so good times,

the I wish I did this or that

&

the I wish didn't do this or that.

Why is it so much easier to make a list

of what isn't

&

instead of what is?

Take some time today to make a list

of all that is

right

as there is so much more

than you could ever imagine.

What if the first sip you take out of the glass of

2018

is a sip of

Thankfulness

a sip of

Forgiveness

a sip of

Peace

a sip of

Patience

a sip of

Love

a sip of

Him~

who fills your cup

to the brim

of all that is

beyond what is

"Merry and Bright".

As my youngest, when she was very young

would ask us for a

Piece of Sip~

of what was in our glass.

She had no clue what was in the cup

yet she craved it

yet she desired it.

So what if

the glass

I raise

&

you raise

to welcome in

2018

is so overflowing with

Thanksgiving

for

the

Birth of the Baby

in our hearts

that other's around us just want

a

Piece of Sip~

just a piece

is all it takes

for

Him

to do the possible in the impossible

and that is

to fill us

what truly satisfies.

Cheers to you

Cheers to yours

Cheers with

the

First Revelation

that

God has placed on my heart

as I prepare to change this year

and

that is to

Make me

&

Shape me

Lord

into one whose

every

Piece of Sip

of You

is beyond filling

so that our prayer is

"that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being,

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people,

to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,

and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—

that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,

according to His power that is at work within us,

to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus

throughout all generations, for ever and ever!

Amen". Ephesians 6:16-21

So great ready

for

the best year of your life

when you

take a

Piece of Sip

of the

One

who fills you

beyond your wildest dreams.
