Out with the old and in with the new! Yes! This time of the year I stop and step back. Refocus. Look at my priorities. Set goals. Organize schedules. Closets. And details. Simplify again. Study the past year. Ask what worked and what did not work. Where do you want to be in a year from now? Five years from now. What is my motive. What is my ‘Why’? Set everything else aside and ask…who am I? Truly. Apart from the world and it’s expectations. So I do this. And I love doing this. I Think. Contemplate. Dream. And THEN, then it comes full circle and I lay it down. Place it in God’s hands. I am HIS. He is mine. I trust. This is hope. This is life in it’s purest.
Diane for taking it for me. And my little sister for playing peek-a-boo and making baby Corde do his silly smile.My family and the Christmas card photo. Thank-you,
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1
I am so thankful God gives us a fresh start. But even more, I am thankful…we only have to take on one day at a time. Here is to a new year. New life. With fullness. Pureness. Freedom. Today I am hopeful and anticipating.
