50 States of Pray: Reflecting on The Year

Isaiah 9:6

King James Version (KJV)
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.


I wish you all a blessed Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Thanks so much to all of you for sticking with me through thick and thin and in sickness and in health this very challenging year. May God bless you in the coming year. 

This is my Colorado contribution to The Fifty States of Pray, hosted by Mark Koopmans  of “Aloha! Mark Koopmans Says Hi from HI”.

Amen, Tina! I selected that same scripture.
And it's a Christmas miracle - shortest post ever!!!
Just kidding!
Have a blessed Christmas, Tina.

I hadn't heard of the 50 states of pray, but I like that selection. Merry Xmas to you, Tina, and your awesome family.

(I secretly was hoping to come here and find pictures of some Engineering marvel like a robotic Xmas tree that hands out the presents for you and picks up the wrapping paper, but I suppose The Engineer can't reveal that until the patent is approved, right?)

I don't know what about your post, or maybe your post and Briane's comment, but, now, I'm thinking:

Mary Christmas wanted to marry Christmas, but... Actually, I don't have the "but," yet.

Merry Christmas!

Hi Tina,
As Alex rightly put it
Yes, its a short and sweet prayer in this list,
Keep going
Have a blessed day and a blessed year ahead.
God Bless
Love
Phil & Ann

Have the merriest of Christmases, Tina, and keep in mind, the most difficult times are the seasons we're growing the most--we just can't see it until we reach the other side.

Dear Tina,

And thanks to you for being you. A remarkable lady. You challenge and the spirit you embrace, has shown how far you've come and how much farther you will go.

Keep that passion for writing beating in your heart, dear friend.

A peaceful Christmas to you and your loved ones.

Hugs,

Gary :)

I've never known which is bad- thick or thin. I mean, I guess it depends on the circumstance? Thick coats are good for cold weather but bad for hot so...

Sorry. That doesn't make sense. I've been cleaning since noon and it's almost seven. I think my brain is trying to function through chemicals and exhaustion.

Merry Christmas, Tina. Enjoy your holiday and relax. I think I'm gonna nap now.

Merry Christmas to you, Tina, and may God bless your new year.

Jo said...

Have a wonderful Christmas Tina and a happy and above all healthy, New Year.

Hi Tina .. the Prince of Peace - it would be soooo good if we could spread that concept to all across the world.

You've had a 'fair' challenging year but things are looking up - and I hope will continue to do so .. though somehow you rise above all the thick and thin ...

Happy preparations for the 28th .. and then New Year .. enjoy being with the family .. cheers Hils

Still getting around and saying 'hi' in Mark's bloghop. Wishing you a fabulous New Year!

Hey Tina, this is Joe from Virginia. I stayed clear of the computer on Tuesday and Wednesday, so just now tooling around to look at the 50 states of pray posts. Wishing you well in the coming year and hope Colorado continues to treat you well.
