2012.

Mark sent this to me today as some encouragement. Moses does this all the time and as a result there are little foot and hand prints climbing up my doorways....although this should not be my cue if I am getting it right it did make me think that I might be doing o.k.! ;)

Life has somehow taken on an accelerated pace since December. In October I was feeling restless and even prayed, "Lord, I am feeling bored and long for something more." Little did I know what I was asking for. December arrived and along with the holidays came Mark's lay off from work, the start of a small group at our home every week, the incorporation of Mark's new photography/coaching business, and a change in schedule of life as it was.

Life is really good it just feels more full...

And I am continuing learning to let go....it seems like such a simple thing but in the midst of transition I tend to clench up when I can't see how everything is going to work.  I find myself frantically cleaning my house or trying to bring order to the chaos and then freaking out when someone messes something up. I realized this is in part  because I feel like I need to hold everything together. Instead of running to the Lord with my fears and worries I have held them inside which makes me tense and not always fun to be around. But when I am at rest I can enjoy the transition more and my eyes can be opened to see the goodness that surrounds me.

So on that note here are a few goals and aspirations for 2012 starting with letting go and trusting God more....

Laugh more and often...

Capture moments in time through photography and blogging...
Keep the focus on being POSITIVE
Trust God's timing

Don't lose focus on the big picture and  get caught up on details

 


Less attitude and more GRACE

Take more time to color, laugh and just be with those I love

Don't sweat the small stuff....
even if it means small pieces of legos all over my house!

See more sunrises

Embrace the chaos and the messes...
 

Don't take life so seriously!






Here's to the new year ahead ...new beginnings, new transitions and new adventures.

We're off to a great start...
