New Year, Fresh Perspective

This blog has been mostly silent for the last few months. I'll admit, it hasn't been difficult to pull myself away from sharing my thoughts. In fact, it feels almost awkward for me to type them now. 2013 was a different kind of year for me. I still haven't figured it all out, so I'm certainly not going to try to sort through it here and spread the confusion. :-)

I think in some ways I disappointed myself by not accomplishing many of my goals for the year. If you know me or have followed the blog, you understand that the second half of the year was completely rocked by my ankle fracture and the subsequent healing process. Many of my friends  encountered circumstances that were and are far more life-changing than mine, and I'm thankful that God gives each of us exactly enough grace to live an abundant life no matter the obstacles. However, I was more than ready to kiss 2013 goodbye and welcome a new year!

I love this list that I plan to use to help stay focused and accountable in 2014.  Asking myself these questions at the end of each day will provide a simple way for me to know whether or not I am making progress in getting my groove back.  :-)

More than ever before, my ultimate purpose is to:
  • live a life that is a pleasing sacrifice to God
  • be the amazing wife that my husband deserves
  • nurture my children toward a deeper relationship with Christ
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."
Proverbs 16:3

I'm excited about 2014.  Not because it will be perfect, but because of the potential it holds.  And because He has promised to walk with me every single day of this year.  That, my friends, makes the journey worth taking.
