A New "Normal"

Well, it is almost 2019 . . . Thanksgiving and Christmas have been celebrated at my house, tomorrow my grandsons will be here for their New Year's Eve Sleepover/Celebration. Tuesday our Christmas tree and lights will come down; yes, 2019 is about to begin and life will return to "normal".

So, as 2019 begins, and we tend to get back to what we typically consider our "normal" day-in-day-out life, let's commit to a "new normal". One which includes the following . . . 
  1. Let's watch for how God leaves His fingerprints (or footprints as my middle grandson likes to call them) in our lives. What is He doing? How is He leading, teaching, guiding and protecting us? What is He doing to care for and provide for us? How is He answering our prayers?
  2. Let's be certain we share with our grandchildren what it looks like for God to leave His finger/footprints in our lives. One strong lessons from the Old Testament Book of Judges shows us what happens when we forget to tell our children and grandchildren about what God is doing for us. If we do not tell, the ones we love will grow up not knowing or remembering God and all He does for us. I want my family to know God and be people who watch for and remember God's prints in their lives.
  3. Let's be sure we spend time in prayer each day for our children and grandchildren - and throughout each day as God prompts. God hears, listens to and answers our prayers. There are so many things I am not able to do as a grandma, but there is nothing God is not able - and willing - to do for them. Do not underestimate God; He will do the most amazing things in the lives of the ones we love!
These are just three of the "new normal" I want to be part of my life as I go through 2019. What do you want to be part of your "new normal"?
