Letting Go and Getting On

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 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'm so glad that I found your blogs. They are full of wisdom and I like this about starting a new year by letting go. I so often let go of the past and then drag it all back up again. This was a good reminder for me.
Thank you!

hello Jan Lyn
I am glad that you were able to be "reminded" of letting go. I often find what I write is what I need to hear! Good reminders for me also.
God bless
