Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be in working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.
Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.
Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above.
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.

Wow, a New Year is again upon us,but the old year went out with more memories made!
All of the children made it home this year for Christmas except for the oldest son. There were 17 around the table for Christmas Day !
There was lots of food ,noise and commotion for fours days. The weather was warm,so the grandchildren totally enjoyed the trampoline,bike,and trucks.
The only granddaughter took a little timeout to read.
The camellias are blooming beautifully right now ,they were a lovely addition to the table.
Now life is back to everyday living, I’m back to my sewing room… It felt good to be back in my sewing room after it was used as a bedroom for week. I was able to finish the center of the Fire Island Hosta ,daughter is tickled with it.
And I finished this top with the blocks that I goofed up. Never know where a goof up might take you..
Made these pillowcases for my Mom,she is in rehab to regain what she lost in a stroke a few weeks back.
Took this picture at the Chesapeake Bay tunnel on the way home from seeing Mom. It was a beautiful evening !!
Blessings to all for the New Year! Deb
