Letting Go and Getting On

Hello
My name is Renee and I have been given the privilege of posting here at this inspirational blog. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, writer, and blessed to be a child of God. May you find peace, joy, and God's love expressed here.

It is the last day of the year...2008 ~ my goodness! I remember when I waited for 2000 and wondered if we really would have some kind of chaos as was predicted...it did not happen. And here we are looking at 2009 already! Before we welcome a new year, I think it is a good time to let go...let go of past resentments, let go of the guilt we may hold on to, let go of disappointments and lost expectations."Today is a good day to accept God's forgiving grace for mistakes and shortcomings of the past year and get on with life"~ I just read these words today in a devotional and they seemed to go right along with my posts on forgiveness and resentments. Think how free we will be when we enter a new year without carrying those heavy burdens of guilt and resentment. A fresh start! I like fresh starts! May your final day of 2008 be one of peace.

I just think it's a perfect idea to start the year anew.
Let go of regrets and fears and failures and just start the year looking forward with faith.
