Greetings to you in the New Year blog friends.
 I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Holiday!

As we enter into the winter months, 
with our young new year ahead, 
I can't help but look towards a new journey
 and the anticipation of all to come our way.

 Everything fresh with a new start,
 a new outlook 
with faith for the days ahead.
 Do you feel this way each new year?
 Do you like to re-evaluate your direction?
 Do you make resolutions? 

I'm not one to make resolutions per say,
 but rather,
 a conviction to ask God's direction
 and listen for the answers.
 Having new plans and trying to do my best.

Whatever you have planned for your journey,
 I hope the new year is filled
 with all that makes you happy.
 All that gives you hope,
all that makes your heart sing
 with the blessing of meeting each new day.

 May God give you peace and love along your path
 and may this new year
 be one to remember!

I'll be back soon to share what's new for
my shoppe
back to visiting you.
I'll be anxious 
to see what's happening in your world.

Till then, 
Blessings to you
Happy New Year!

See you soon.
Celestina Marie

I haven't set an goals or planned much yet- just looking for happier days. I plan to spend today working on putting the holiday decorations away for another year. Wishing you a blessed, happy, healthy and happy New Year!

I feel blessed to have this new year day fall on the end of a two week vacation. Blessed indeed! I too hope that the year is seamlessly played out, to not make resolutions, but to continue to develop a lifestyle imitating what JESUS commanded: to love on another. Everything else in between is up to us and the creativity with which He has gifted us. Blessings to you as you find more creative ways to let HIS LIGHT within you, SHINE!

Happy New Year! I hope yours is filled with peace, love and the promises of a brighter tomorrow... :)

I don't make resolutions/goals either. Too easy to get bogged down in all that - just sets you up for failure and disappointment. Instead, I have a list of things I want to focus on.

One thing that's not on that list is to get together with you. Which we will do - that's a GOAL.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Happy New Year to you too, Celeste.
Now that our daughter’s wedding is behind us, I’m very happy to be able to get back to visiting with bloggy friends more often again.
Many blessings!

Donna said...

I'm with you, Celestina about making resolutions. I do look forward to a brand new year and a fresh start, though! I am loving your new blog header and seeing your pretty face:) Happy New Year!

Junkchiccottage said...

Happy New Year Celeste. My wish is for lots of wonderful creative moments filled with happiness and great health in the new year for you. Thank you for sharing your sweet loving heart through friendship this past year.

Kathy said...

I feel exactly the same way about the new year. It is a new beginning and a time when I seldom look back at the previous year. I just look ahead to the possibilities of the new one. A fresh start!
Happy New Year to you, my friend!

Mari said...

Wishing you a New Year full of peace and happiness.....

Your thoughts and words are written from your heart. I look forward to all you inspire and create in 2016. I never make New Year resolutions instead here is what I do - every year I pick a country throughout the world to support, purchase from, learn their customs, cook their foods, hopefully travel to and educate others about them. I also pick a cause or a charity to volunteer for and support with contributions. I will reveal my two picks for 2016 in a blog post soon enough.
Thank you for your kindness, friendship and inspiration and I wish you and your family a joyful, healthy New Year.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Happy New Year, Celeste! Thanks for hanging in there with me the past couple of months! : )

I am looking forward to the New Year in many ways. I have set a few goals for myself and hope to work on them all year long.

I too do not make resolutions but I do ask for help God's direction in my life and that he will guide me in the way he wants me to go in the coming year. Wishing you many blessings in the coming year!!

Happy New Year!

Yesteryear Embroideries said...

Well I guess you could call my resolutions goals because I always have some kind of new thing I want to accomplish or to learn when the new a blank canvas comes along.
Getting them accomplished is another story however!
Wising you a happy and peaceful new year!

Roosterhead Designs said...

Happy New year! We started a diet again....LOL We have a trip planned, so we need to lose a few pounds. It's a new year, so I hope it is bright and promising. xo

Karen@Southern Gal Meets Midwest said...

Thank you for the beautiful post Celestina. Yes, asking for God's direction is the best way to start the New Year. Adventures, Endeavors or Resolutions, whatever we call them, having our fathers hand in it will surely show us the way. Thanks again for the inspiration as we start 2016 :)
Peace & Blessings,

Cynthia said...
