the countdown begins...

                5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1

Well friends, for us here in New Zealand it is a little less than 25 hours away from the New Year.

2012 is around the corner. The sun will set for the last time on 2011 tomorrow evening.

Some people will be celebrating, watching displays of fireworks.
Some will be dancing.
Some will be drinking ... a lot.
Some will celebrate the New Year with friends.
Some will be alone, maybe crying.
Some will be praying.
Some will be working.
Some will be sleeping (don't laugh! I've done that before)

What will you be doing?

Some will be relieved that 2011 is over and smile.
Some people will feel sad, reflecting on a difficult year.
Some might be very excited about welcoming 2012.

Here are two questions ...

~ If you could sum up 2011 in one sentence or even one word what would it be? 

~ At this moment, what would be your greatest desire for 2012?
I'd like to learn to be content in all things.

Let me know your thoughts!

A blessed New Year to you all. May 2012 bring peace and joy.
