Jan 1, 2010


Happy New Year dear friends! Today marks the 1 year anniversary of my blog. It was started as a place to express my thoughts, who would read it any way? Then you showed up! I have made so many dear friends this year. Friends that let me share my heart and never judged. When I count my blessings, I count you as one of the biggest blessings in 2009. I have a few New Year's Resolutions, the most important one is to be content in every situation. The year 2009 was a very difficult year for me, I believe 2010 will be my best year yet. God is more than able!

To celebrate the one year anniversary, I have planned a give away. It will end January 31, 2010, with Noah, picking the winner. Noah loves to do that! Since I am a book-a-holic, what would be better than another book? Rachel Ashwell is my favorite designer. This book, The Gift of Giving, I believe is her best! All you have to do is leave a comment, the more you leave the more chances you get. (I love getting to know you.) If you choose to follow, I will give you two extra points and last but not least, if you add my button to your blog, you get three chances. It is just that easy. Just let me know what you have done and Noah and I will do the rest!

May you cup over flow this New Year, with God's rich blessings. If you are in need of healing, money, have family problems, whatever your need, God is more than able. Remember, I am always here to pray for you. You can email me, if you would like to keep it private. Together we can believe for miracles in 2010! Martha

Happy Blogoversary!!! Congratulations on a whole year of blogging. Have you made your list of 100 Things About You yet? I understand it's a 'traditional' post to be shared at this juncture. Mine can be found as a link in my sidebar. I enjoyed all your PINK things today and your lovely words too. Happy Pink Saturday! I shared Pretty PINK Flowers from Sunny Southern California this morning to brighten your day and earlier this week I shared Blue Skies & Random Reflections for 2009 at Sacred Ruminations. I'm glad to have encountered you in this virtual world. Here's to many more years of blogging. May the new decade bring you and yours joyful opportunities and experiences!
Hugs and blessings

Martha what beautiful pink treasures you have. My favorite is the pink heart sun catcher. I've collected sun catchers for years and yours is just stunning.

I found your blog by way of Beverly's Pink Saturday and have now bookmarked it. I also added myself as a follower, and placed your button on the sidebar of my blog.

Tara said...

Hi Martha,
Happy New Year to you. Is CC named Catherine and does she live in GA? If so I can send you her link. or is it CCofthecups? I hope this helps solve the mystery. It is so cold here I am off to make a pot of chicken soup...burr!

Moments of Grace said...

How I love your blog!!! I have today become a follower and will definitely add your link to my sidebar.
I didn't think there could be another grandmother who would feel about their grandchildren the way I do. However, your words describe my feelings for my two grandsons, Gabriel and Michael, perfectly. Isn't it wonderful being a grandmother?
I pray this new year will be one of joy, peace, and the the richest blessings of our great God. Without the comfort of His presence, we are without hope and faith. With Him, we are most richly blessed.
May His presence be near you today, dear friend.

In Grace,

Terri said...

Hi Martha! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. I was away for a while and have just come home yesterday.
I am so thrilled with your "Be content" intention. It seems to be a very healthy way to be. I wish for you that this year will be a year of healing and health!
Thank you for the blessing of YOU! I love reading your posts, and sharing your experiences. Many hugs to you.
