"i cannot say the smallest part which i feel."

every morning at approximately 3:10am i receive an email from the foundation for a better life.

they send me an inspiring quote/message.

*it's a happy little ritual
makes me feel kinda special.


today's quote=

“when you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

—Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896); writer


my year has been a testament to that fact.

{2008 was challenging for me.}

but now, here,
on the very last day of the 365 big ones...
i am watching many prayed-for blessings unfold.

as i approach a new, fresh, and exciting set of
joys & days
i find myself feeling kinda like that dude in the book of mormon,
[i think it was ammon]
when he said:

"therefore, let us glory,
yea we will glory in the lord;
yea, we will praise our god forever.
behold, who can glory too much in the lord?
yea, who can say too much of his great power,
and of his mercy,
and of his long-suffering towards the children of men?
behold, i say unto you,

i cannot say the smallest part which i feel."


here's to new beginnings, tides turning,
& a gracious god in heaven who blesses us with that
beautiful opportunity.

[happy new year, blogsters!]
