Clear skies, chilly temps, Boeuf Bourguignon, fresh bread, dear friends and a New Year's Eve to ring in. What a wonderful recipe for a happy, fun, beautiful evening!
It's been three years since we've been up at Selah, JV's retreat house in the Beskydy Mountains, to share New Year's Eve with these friends. What a sweet evening to be together again with these dear ones.
After watching the amazing fireworks display in the valley below (if you've never seen how Europeans ring in the new year, it's quite a beautiful sight to behold!), we brought in the new year by sharing wishes with each other and praying prayers of thanksgiving for all the Lord did in the old year.
May the year ahead be full of the Lord's presence and work in our lives as we press on to know, love and serve him more!
