Anyhow, have to share with you my wonderfully exciting New Year's Eve. It was fabulous. It was like nothing I have experienced on any other New Year's Eve.
I spent the night at the emergency room hoping to either be given a miracle cure or a termination date for this crud that I have fought for ten days. While waiting for the doctor, I enjoyed a wonderful conversation with a mentally challenged man who not only pulled up his shirt to show me his scar from his open heart surgery, but shared with me how "beef stew just gives me the run-offs."
Now, before you think I am making fun of this nice man, I am not. His open frankness and his innocent faith were touching. He, as I started off, called to me: "Happy New Year, ma'am! I hope you get better and that God will bless you!" I returned the wishes. Let me say, that was the nicest send off that I've had in a very long time.
And, you know what? I think I will and that He will!

I have so many things in my life that will benefit from practicing this word... and the world would benefit from more people using discernment.
Are you going to select a word to guide you for this year?
