This week sandwiched between Christmas and New Years is a special gift!

The rush of the holiday preparation is over. The glory of celebrating the reason for the season fills our heart with contentment and peace.

So, take advantage of this ‘tween week to prepare for the new year.

Reflect over the past year, and all your past years. Think ahead to the new year, a new beginning.

Ponder what dreams God has placed within your heart, which have been incubating, ready to burst forth in the new year.

Take time to sit, alone — and listen for the still small voice that whispers life and hope to your heart.

His mercies are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:23)

A new beginning, a new year is exciting. No resolutions. Just hopes and dreams! And plans!!

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

Use your tween days to hope and dream and plan!
