Happy New Year 2024!

Happy New Year
Happy New Year from Abundant Family Living

Happy New Year!  As I get older, the years seem to pass more and more quickly.  I'm reminded of something I heard a few years ago - the days are long, but the years are short.  This is such a true statement.  Our days can be so very long.  They may be filled with challenges both expected and unexpected, joy and grief, labor and rest, laughter and tears.  Some days might feel like a week or even a month, and yet the time between January 1st and December 31st always seems like a flash.  The lesson we can learn from this is the value of time.  Time is a precious gift that should never be taken for granted.  Now that I'm older, I realize that as a younger woman, I took so much time for granted.  Even though so many had warned me of how quickly it flies, I still had no idea.  Now here I am, decades later.  My babies are all grown up.  My bones and muscles are weaker, and the time I have left here on earth is shorter.  With each passing year, I realize how quickly the time ahead will soon be time gone by.  

A few days ago, I was watching and listening to my children interact with each other as adults.  Their laughter was such a blessing, like music I could listen to forever, but again, time passed more quickly than I wanted and all too soon, the moments faded into the night and another day passed into history.  

May we all learn to savor every moment as the precious gift that it is as we move into another year that will all too soon be time gone by.  

Today, I wish you all a happy and blessed 2024.  I'll leave you with a few Bible verses to begin the new year.  

Bible Verses for the New Year 2024

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, this person is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6

Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles.  They will run and not get tired.  They will walk and not become weary.  Isaiah 40:31

That, in reference to your former way of life, you are to rid yourselves of the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you are to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.  Ephesians 4:22-24

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18

Behold, I am going to do something new.  Now it will spring up; will you not be aware of it?  I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.  Isaiah 43:19

Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courtyards with praise.  Give thanks to Him, bless His name.  Psalm 100:4

The Lord’s acts of mercy indeed do not end, for His compassions do not fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I wait for Him."  Lamentations 3:22-24

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  Philippians 4:6

So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.  Psalm 90:12
