joni and kenAnd as we head into 2013 together, Ken and I are praying that God will pour out on you His incomparably great riches in Christ Jesus – the riches of his grace, mercy, and soul-satisfying peace . Remember, Psalm 73:22-27 is a wonderful reminder to keep holding tightly onto the Lord's hand in the months to come: "I am always with you [God]; you hold by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." That is worth memorizing!

Happy New Year to you and Ken as well, Joni. Just to let you know, I began the "Chronological Bible-in-a-Year Reading Schedule" your ministry published, and finished right on time Monday December 31! It was a true blessing, and a great discipline. Thank you for doing that! May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Good Morning:) It was nice to open up a "non-scam, non-viral" post that is filled with such love for our Lord:) My prayers for everyone is that we all realize the blessings we have from God and try to turn each "negative" event into a learning, improving, and seeking His will as to what or how we are to respond!!! I love seeking His will even in the most extremely difficult scenerios. I find I am not so negative minded or acting:) God Bless you guys and that is a beautiful picture! Thanks for your ministry :)
