Here's To A New Year

The fruit of the spirit
is love,
joy, peace, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and
Gal. 5:22
The New Year is
upon us.
Do you have
any special goals
or plans?

Hi Sheri! Just read your comment, and it melt my heart! You are so sweet and you are definitely different from the other bloggers that visit. Thank you for always having something sweet to say and for always putting a smile on my face!
This is a stunning picture on today's post, and i love that verse. My hubby and I are planning to get healthier after new years and go back to eating healthier and exercising more. Also, just receiving day by day and being thankful to our Lord for all His amazing daily blessings.
Best wishes to you my darling!

A beautiful post, Sheri, and I wish you a Happy New Year! My plans for 2014 are to start painting lessons, and lose some weight!

Happy New Year Ladies and thank you for making 2013 just that more beautiful! Your posts always inspires and reflect marvelous souls!
Love the illustration for this post very much!!
2014 will bring good things and bad ones...a balance is always needed, right? Goal(s)? One day at a time Friends, one day at a time...Savour each moment? More book reading? Some much needed knitting? Meeting new friends (and old) online? Walk more...Age catching up and stretching a good idea, right?
All the best,


Lovely sentiment. No plans as of now. Last year my word was HOPE. This year I'm choosing the word BELIEVE to guide me.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment you left on my blog. I haven't been blogging much lately but hopefully things will get less hectic in life next year and I'll find time to spend in blogland, write blogposts myself and visit lovely blogs, like yours. You're so right, it is great to meet people from all over the world that way.

Happy New year! Best wishes for 2014!


Ann said...

No plans yet
but lots of goals and aspirations
I still have to make plans on how to achieve them.

May you have a wonderful 2014 ahead.

And thanks for informing me that your side bar link shows my previous post and not the latest one. I really have no idea why and what to do about it... and I'm still too busy right now...Thanks again.

Imogen said...

Happy new year and best wishes my three dear friends. My main resolutions are to drink less coke zero and to get my spending under control. My goal for the year seems pretty ambitious to me. I want to complete my post graduate qualification in legal practice which, for over a year now, I just haven't had the self confidence to try. It's pretty huge for me and I am terrified.

Well my dear, my first plan is to get my internal clock back on its routine so I can get back to work after next week, but first thing is that I want to catch up with blogging! I was unable to get Wifi services where I was so I missed out on so much in Blogland.

May peace and goodness and all the fruits of the spirit be in you always. Anita

Sheri, this is such a lovely post.

I have made up my mind to be more disciplined this year. My first goal is behavior that will improve my health.

I wish you and your beautiful family more Merry Christmastime as we head into the new year.

You are one of kindest and sincere hearts in blogland, my friend!

Shine said...

Precious friend!

Thank you for coming to visit last night! It was a very quick post just to let everyone know I was away, hence my absence! But let me tell you, I had the grandest time with my family. It was a very SHORT visit, but we needed to get back here to rest up and have at least one more week to ourselves before getting back to work. We got home on Friday night and today, MONDAY, I am now feeling back to normal, getting over the jet-lag.

I hope to incorporate some of my "impressions" from my trip throughout the month of January. But I had so much fun with my remaining family members (our elders are now gone) and seeing the ocean again was extremely healing.

Thank you for not only your blog visits, but your care and friendship, Sheri. You mean the world to ME! BISOUS, Anita

My plans are to continue to travel to new places - I'm thinking Siena in Italy and a road trip through Idaho and Montana. My goal is to shed some of the weight that has crept up on me these last few years. Less selfishly to be a better friend and daughter.

But what about you. What are your dreams for 2014?

Happy New Year x

Well, you've read my plans ... to continue striving to be a peacemaker no matter what comes my way. Easier said than done, but I am more determined than ever.
Thank you for sharing the fruit of the Spirit. I pray we are all very fruitful this coming year.
Many blessings to you and your loved ones, lovely.

Even though I have aches and pains from the meds I take, this year I will keep on being a thoughtful, serving, generous person. I will keep writing, painting, and get back to gardening in the spring. Thanks for being such an encouraging friend!
