Last year I decided to be more purposeful in my Bible reading and time with God. This year, I can say that I really miss my time in the Bible if I skip a morning. Even 15 minutes really makes a difference in how well I respond to what my day throws at me.
Last year I realized just how much my Little G loves to be in the kitchen with me. This year, I am going to make sure I remember to involve her even more in the cooking.
Last year God reminded me how much He loves us through the beauty of spring. This year, I can’t wait to see what He is going to reveal to me.
Last year God reminded me to be still. This year I am going to try harder to remember that I need to rest in Him more.
Last year my oldest turned 13 and I officially became a mom of a teenager. This year, my second oldest is turning 13 and then I will be the mom of two teens. Wow, it seems like yesterday they were just little ones.
Last year while watching God paint the sunset, I realized that not only is He the greatest artist of all time, He also sings. I can't wait to hear His voice, how about you? This year I look forward to what He will show me while I watch Him paint the skies and trees and the fields.
Last year I took the 31 Day challenge and wrote about my homeschooling adventures but didn't quite finish the series. This year, I have no idea if I will take the challenge again but if I do, I plan on finishing by starting earlier.
Last year I turned another year older and I remember how blessed I am to have my family. This year, I want to make sure I remember every single day how blessed I am to have my family. Even on the hard days.
This year is a great and marvelous adventure waiting to happen. I have plans and ideas of what I want to do but I know that God's plans are so much better than mine. I am not afraid of what the year may bring. There will always be good times and bad times. But no matter what, God is sovereign in it all. God has a story for my life but not just mine, for everyone. My life story impacts those around me in ways I may never know. Joseph had to endure being sold as a slave and then being thrown in prison before he was put into a position where he was able to not only save his family from starvation but a whole country and region. I am not afraid of what life holds. I know that God has it all figured out already.
Linking up with P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday.
