We had a lovely Christmas with family, friends and our church. I hope you did too. Our tree isn't down yet and if yours is, don't tell me (I will be jealous!) I am moving a little slower this season! My goal is to have it down by Valentine's Day! Ha!
I'm trying to carve out a little time this week to just sit and consider what God has taught me this year and I encourage you to do the same. This past year, God has taught me the importance of being connected with others, disciplining myself to receive His rest, and enjoying the freedom of living in His acceptance.
What about you? I would love to know what God has taught you this past year. Jot down what you've learned on my blog.
Okay, one last girl thing...let me tell you what I got for Christmas...a Keurig! Oh girl, it's a smack daddy of a coffee maker and I love it! (Can you tell I've already had way too many cups today?!) Anyway, if you have one, please tell me what your favorite blend is. I am trying all the flavors and I have consumed way too much caffeine in the process! If you've never tried coffee from a Keurig, give it a taste test!
I've been reading Decision Points by George W. Bush and I love it. And, then Clayton gave me Laura Bush's book, Spoken from the Heart, for Christmas so I am feeling like part of the Bush family these days!
I hope you can take a few hours this week and just sip some Java and visit with God about this past year and the upcoming one. Don't get all uptight about a ton of goal setting yet, just sit with Him and let Him lead you into path He wants you to walk. Rest in Him.
Thanks for hanging with me this past year. I pray God's wisdom and grace upon you in 2011. May you rest in His love.
P.S. The picture above is our latest family picture. Clayton (21), Connor (12), me and my Dr. Phil. Happy New Year.
