I found this neat idea from the blog My Cup Runneth Over.
Only it was yesterday, and today is today.
A Little About Myself
Outside my window it is very dark and my yard looks like a dried up pond. It's been raining off and on for a week.
I am thinking that I'm a little sad tonight. No reason. Just the after-Christmas blues, I guess.
I am thankful for the miracle that God has given us this year, the birth of a baby who has been prayed for and prayed over for many years. God has granted us the desires of our hearts.
I am wearing jogging pants and a T-shirt. I have belly-bulge so I'm letting it all hang out:)
I am creating absolutely nothing right now. I'm still enjoying my Christmas creations until the grandloves are home.
I am going back to Nashville when my new baby comes home.
I am wondering if my family will ever be whole again.
I am reading The Escape by David Baldocci. I am going to pick up where I left off in my Bible study of Genesis and read the Bible through this year. With the baby being born, I've been rather careless.
hoping praying for reconciliation in my family.
I am learning that it is not in my power to make everyone happy. Some things I've had to leave in God's hands and let Him fight for me.
Around the house is a mess. I've got floors to mop, dusting to do, beds to change and stuff to put away before the kids get here.
In the kitchen, I have a leaking sink and the dishwasher isn't working. This was quite a combination during Christmas.
I am pondering that I need to return to my first love. I've become distracted by many things. I need to return to what is truly needed.
"I know your works and your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who do evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars, and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for my name's sake, and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repend and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand, unless you repent." Revelation 2:2-5
One of my favorite things is junkin', pickin', browsing and not buying a thing.
A few plans for the week: Clean the house, declutter, wrap my son's present.
A peek into my day: I plan to pause for a few minutes, with a cup of coffee from my new coffeemaker,
grab my Bible and reflect on where I've been, where I want to be, and what it is going to take to get there.
Will you join me?
Happy New Year,
