Confident future.

What better way to end one year and begin another than with confidence that laughter leads the way no matter what comes next. Because of a noble wife’s diligent and prudent work, she gains strength and honor from a solid financial position, giving her confidence to face the days ahead.

My grandfather unexpectedly died of a heart attack in 1937, leaving my grandmother widowed and alone. To provide for her children, my mom only five years old at the time; grandma took in laundry and sold eggs to pay the bills.

Although I barely knew Grandma, I remember her tall stature and no-nonsense personality. In the face of adversity, she rose to the occasion, doing what she needed to do to survive. And she laughed, always quick with a smile.

In this life, hardship will come. But we will find victory when we ground ourselves in the Lord, following His commands. We can laugh at the days to come, knowing God determines our path, His plan unfolding with each breath we take.

Lord, thank You for another year. As we begin another trip around the sun, guide and direct our paths, making our feet surefooted. Let us laugh at the days to come as we trust in You.  IJNIP. Amen
