2009 Is Here!

To your neighbor be kind, in '09.
At the Lord's table dine, in '09.
Jesus (joy, victory...) is mine, in '09.
The devil we bind, in '09.
All is fine, in '09.
Walk the straight the line, in '09.
For heaven I pine, in '09.
New souls find, in '09.
Drink wine from the heavenly vine, in '09.
And my favorite...
Don't whine, in '09.


  1. Don't Whine... Somehow, it wouldn't be complete without a "no whining" coming from the allards! lol.
    love you guys!

  2. Virginia & I wish and pray for the very best to all the Allard families. As well as our friends in Delano.

  3. I pray 2009 is a year filled with many blessings! Happy New Year!

  4. I pray that 2009 is a year filled with many blessings for the Allard Family. Happy New Year!

  5. Can't I "whine" just a little bit? LOL Seriously no whining for me. I am to the age where you are too thankful to be unappreciative. Just graciously accept each day.

  6. Happy New Year, Jana. I hope this is the beginning of a great year. Love, Helen

  7. Sonia - I definitely thought about all our YOM days when I put the "Don't whine in '09." We sure did have a lot of fun, huh? Hope you had a great Christmas and that your new year brings you many blessings.

    Mervi - Thank you. I hope you and Virginia have a year filled with much better health.

    Ronda - Thank you and the same to you.

    Karen - I've never heard you whine yet and I don't figure you will start. It is just not part of your character. LOL

    Helen - thank you for the well wishes. I certainly hope this is a better year for all of us. My mom is in therapy with her arm and is still experiencing much pain. Hopefully, she will have a much better year, too.
