The view from our room in Laughlin NV., overlooking the Colorado River and Bullhead City, AZ.
We are here with our good friends Dave and Gail (Victorian at Heart). We came over yesterday and took Historic Route 66 part of the way. It was a sentimental journey for me because as a child, traveling with my family and pulling our trailer we often traveled Route 66. Wish I would have taken a picture of the sign.
Speaking of signs...do any of you remember Burma Shave signs. My sister and I used to watch for them trying to make riding four in the front of our Ford pick-up a little less boring. They were signs with one or two words that added up to a saying or joke or something. They were posted on fence posts and the last one would say Buy Burma Shave. Well, Mr. SS thinks I made that up, but I remember.
As for the New Year...Hope you all are blessed with the best New Year ever. We are thanking the Lord for pulling us through the last year and blessing us with health, a loving family and the support of good friends. Also for providing shelter and food and all that we need.
We are thankful for the "fresh start" we have been given and are humbled by His love.
Last year my resolution (prayer) was to be able to be still and listen to what God has in store for me.
I stumbled along the way and tried to take back control, but for the most part I prayed more and waited more patiently for his answers and tried to listen. He has been there for us every step of the way.
My prayer for all of you is a New Year full of the Lord's blessings and "fresh starts".
(I must give credit to my friend Suzanne Notes From the Patch for the "fresh start" reference. She used it in an e-mail to me and it just fit our situation perfectly. Thanks friend.)
God is Good!
Life is Good!
