Another year. I am thankful to be in God’s loving hand, because things don’t usually turn out the way I expect them to! I know His plans for me are always for good. What a wonderful promise.
For the last few years, I’ve picked a word for the year. When I do, it inevitably turns out differently than I expect. Last year, I chose the word “enjoy.” I want to re-train myself so quilting becomes a joyful and fun adventure. While that is a work in progress, what really happened was that I relaxed and enjoyed my family more, especially our new granddaughter.
Lately I’ve been working towards making progress, not achieving perfection. In that spirit, I’m back to trying to lose weight (almost 25 lbs so far!), and I’ve been de-cluttering my house (the two bathrooms, the kitchen and dining room, the laundry, the living room, and part of our bedroom complete!) I want to continue making progress on my quilt making, too, particularly conquering George. This year, my word for the year will be
“Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.” 1 Timothy 4:15
We’ll see what happens!
