Showered and dressed....no make up, but ready to start the New Year's Eve preparations. Food, games, movie watching and did I mention food? Oh and we will fast forward through all the garbage to watch the ball drop in New York at midnight.
I remember a time when I had so much anticipation and wonder for the New Year. This year is different...I have a plan of action for my life and our Family. We have BIG things coming up. Moving to a low key destination, becoming more self reliant, finally finishing my book. All this while we wrap our arms around God as tightly as possible.
It's all really exciting and not overwhelming like it would have been 2 years ago for us. I believe we feel this way because we aren't trying to be in control. Trying to be the one in control has been our problem in the past, giving up control has freed us from ourselves from messing everything up. God already knows the beginning and the end, so why should we stand in the middle waving around our 2 cents.
As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15
