Lots! Normally what *I* want to do and what my husband wants to do are widely different. But as we grow closer to one another we find that we really do have common ground.
Every year I think about the year that has just past. What did I do? What did I enjoy? What blessed us as a family? What do I want to incorporate into our life? What do I need to work on? What needs to change?
As it would be God had been whispering to me for some months, as last year I prayed for one thing specifically, “draw us as a family and individually closer to YOU” ♥
He heard me and has been stirring much around in my heart.
One area He is drawing me to is being with Him for no other reason than to sit by His side and listen. I love to do that with my husband. Sitting and listening to him talk with me about our lives and share with me his hopes and dreams. John blesses me so much. That’s what I felt God was wanting me to do with Him….sit with Him….with a quiet spirit.
Another area was to start doing some Bible Studying. I have started “A Time To Seek God” and I am enjoying it immensely.
I did make a list last week, that is four pages long, about all the things I wanted to do this coming year.
Things that I enjoy like using these more:
And trying these out:
My Pinterest board has some short styles too. I’m keeping my hair long for now :-)
Write in these a bit more:
Nuture our marriage with more of this:
This year we will be married 26 yrs. Only by God’s grace ♥
Keep learning about this handsome man and what he enjoys.
Take healthy eating to the next level for our family:
There are so many more things I would love to accomplish and I’m encouraged about asking God for His strength and discipline to get it all done.
One more thing I’d like to get done is to lose ten pounds. Yes I’d love to lose more than that but I’m starting there. I am basically the same place I was last year. I don’t like that. Although I’m healthier and my body is healing well from working through food allergies I still need a bit of a push to get beyond where I am at.
So there you have it. Me in a nutshell. Or just me, the nut ;-)
I am so glad you stopped by for a visit. It’s always so nice to take a moment to read the sweet words you have left here. Care to share what you are looking forward to this year?
p.s. Rosie is all better and no one else (yet) has come down with any illness. We have a few runny noses and sore throats but that’s it! Praise the Lord!! Thank you for all your prayers~
