Goodbye 2010 This is Your Last Post

Farewell to 2010. It was a pretty good year. There were new milestones and I eased into the empty nest syndrome pretty nicely. The youngest bird seems to fly back home a lot but that's okay. He really does need his own car. You know how car is spelled f r e e d o m. Hopefully that will be accomplished within the first month of the new year.

My New Year's Resolution, um, I mean, my New Year's attitude, is what I wrote on my FaceBook wall--"Prayer, first thing in the morning, is like arming yourselves." 2011 is gonna find me armed for the battle. It can't be all that hard to wake up and greet the Lord before your feet touch the ground. After all, isn't He the one who just gave you a brand new day? So I'm pretty sure He knows what's coming.

Early this morning I braved the chill of the Southern California winter. Don't laugh. We're pretty sissy when it dips below 70 degrees. In any case, I had my cell phone, my trusty Palm Pre, and took a few pics. After the rain is nice.

We actually have grass growing in the back yard. Woo hoo! This came a day after the water receded. I think God was building a swimming pool back there. Be careful what you pray for.

This is the ground before the rain.








This is the ground after the rain. No kidding!









My scripture for the year 2010 was Philippians 4:12, "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want."

The new year will have me on offense with Ephesians 6:10-17, "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

So goodbye 2010. It was a very good year.
