Welcome to the Sweet Life Under the Savior 2015 Roundup on the blog!

 I look forward to writing this every year. It's so neat to look back on what has happened through this online journal of our lives. Plus, I love statistics and summaries. ;) I think I'll throw in a few more "favorite things" here and there as well, just to spice it up a tad. ;)

My three favorite New Year's Eve songs:

1. "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" by Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon Levitt

2. "Happy New Year" by Steven Curtis Chapman

3. "This Year" by JJ Heller


"Now hope does not disappoint....."

"As another chapter ends, and another one begins, slowly now we turn the page....
the Story's being told, and the best is yet to come. 
So Happy New Year, Happy New Year, another chance to catch a glimpse of what is coming true. 
So Happy New Year, Happy New Year, the God Who made everything is remaking everything, 
the God Who made everything, He says "I'm making ALL THINGS NEW. So Happy New Year."

"I launch my bark on the unknown waters of this year, with Thee, O Father, as my harbor, 
Thee, O Son, at my helm, Thee, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails." ~ The Valley of Vision 

Happy New Year of 2016, beloved friends!! May you enter it with peace and joy.

With love always,
