I love New Years Day. It’s a time to reflect on the previous year and all it had to offer. But even better, it’s a time to start over, make new goals, and get a fresh outlook on the year before us. I don’t necessarily get all crazy about “resolutions” because they are usually forgotten by January 10th! I do however like the idea of new goals. A chance to do some things different. Remember the first day of school and all those new school supplies….new jeans….new shoes….and for me, it was always a new school! How about a new book. New linens. New cars. It always makes me think of a chance for a do-over. So I’ve penciled down some goals for this year. I won’t share them with you now, but I wanted to encourage you to find a place to spend some time with the Lord, find some paper and jot down a few things you would like to do different or achieve this year. Goals are good for all of us. It’s an opportunity to face forward, forget about any difficulties of the previous year and get busy working on the clean slate before us!

"About you"? It is hard to declare any one thing or even a few things that would be of any interest to anyone! I love God. I know that I am His child, and I waver between being totally overwhelmed with His love, grace and mercy in my life, to being overwhelmed with how fast life is passing and how bad a job I have done at living this life He has given me. I often wonder if anyone else is out there walking around trying to act normal (which, if I may insert here, is really a relative term to everyone...what is normal?). About me? I am complicated! I love God with all my heart and want to serve Him with all my heart and want to do something important with all my heart and yet, this life I live everyday, doesn't seem to line up with that. More than anything - I want to be a published writer. I want to have the time to go to places that are surrounded by the sound of crashing waves and breezes and just listen. Or, to sit on a deck of some remote cabin and listen to the whisper of God's voice in the trees. I wonder.....I wonder if those moments will ever come? View all posts by dana2day
