A Fresh Start

We are now in the first week of the first year of a new decade. ~2010~ Wow! A new beginning! A fresh start! A clean slate. We are able to look forward with anticipation to what lies ahead!

God has given all of us a fresh start too. As children of God, we have been made clean through the blood of Jesus Christ. Isaiah 1:18 says, "Come now let us reason together: though your sins are like scarlet, they are now white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool."

We have an awesome God who forgives our sins, cleanses us, and provides us with a fresh start each and every day! What a precious gift.


Thanks to Charlotte and Ginger who provide us with Spiritual Sundays at www.bloggerspirit.blogspot.com. Visit them and be blessed.

I love being given a "fresh start" with every new dawn. Somehow, this seems more poignant at year's end. What a precious gift, indeed!

Happy New Year!

Ah a second person brings the blood of Jesus to us this weekend. Sometimes I think that we forget that being a Christian is just about this, or maybe we think we can get passed that to the more important stuff? Really, is there anything more important? Much love to you in the week to come, Cherie
