I love fresh starts, new beginnings ... the chance to start over is sometimes welcomed and that's kind of what we get to do when a new year rolls around. However, I hardly said “hello” to January and we're already in the last chapter. I am seriously hoping the rest of the year is a little slower, in control, purposed … I don't know exactly what I mean but I do know I want to
- live my word “believe”
- start on some very needed home projects
- develop a better routine for daily living- for my personal Bible study and writings- for my arts and crafts projects- for my classes with the kids in the neighborhood- for my Sunday evening class with the kids- for my study of Spanish
- and live abundantly every single day.
I don't have that in any particular order, just stuff on my mind. Sometimes I get weary of being so busy and it's hard to imagine adding one more thing to my life, but I probably waste more time than I realize. I don't want to be overly strict with myself … only lay down some guidelines. I realized today I don't even have a 2012 calendar up yet so will probably print one off today. I usually buy several from the $ stores stateside but didn't have the opportunity to do that!
Before we leave January I'll hopefully be writing a couple of more notes but in case I get side-tracked let me just share:
| || January's flower is the Carnation. |
Some folks don't appreciate the carnation- maybe because it can be 'over-used' but I guess I just love all flowers - isn't this pink one pretty?
