What I know is that my great grandparents, my grandparents and my parents......ate them on January 1st each year, for GOOD LUCK and for MONEY!! And now.....my family eats them for Good Luck and Wealth. Even my two grown daughters feed all of this deliciousness to my grandchildren!!
Will each of our grandkids pass this tradition down to their children?? I'm guessing so!!!
In my case.....the great thing is......I love cooked cabbage and I love Black-eyed peas. No problem in me eating these two dishes on New Years day.....or any other day for that matter.
Another interesting thing that I know is this! No matter what the coming year holds for me and my family.......GOD IS IN CONTROL. Sure, HE gives me the opportunity to make good choices or bad choices......BUT, if I seek HIM on a daily basis.....and I ask HIM to direct every step I make, THEN.....I can rest assured that I am going to be Victorious!
We have a brand New Beginning right before us!
Happy New Year to each of you! May we all recognize the daily Blessings that are given to us so freely. And....may we always be quick to give God the Glory that HE deserves!
