Sitting…at the dining room table
Liking…the cold(er) weather. Twenty six degrees this morning and not expected to get much above freezing
Getting…back in the daily routine post-Christmas break. Today we return to the real world of school, lunch boxes, car line, and the other such daily responsibilities. I didn’t dread it but I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it either. It’s a busy week, as is usual, a busy month really. Actually it’s just a busy life at this stage!
Reading…The World Tilting Gospel by Dan Phillips and a P.D. James novel and liking both very much
Hoping…to finish re-watching season 1 of Downton Abbey sometime this week before season 2 begins Sunday night on PBS
Thinking…about Bible study and whether I will teach this spring and, if yes, what I would teach and when I would teach. I’m also wondering why this has become such a difficult decision and why my confidence is so easily swayed. I don’t know what to do! Does that mean I continue as I did last fall and don’t do anything in terms of leading a group?
Making…no New Year’s resolutions this year but I do have a few vague goals I’d like to accomplish, Lord willing. I’d like to blog more, for example, and perhaps just write more in general. I always have a list in the back of my mind of projects I hope to accomplish, furniture to paint for example. I’d love to simplify in terms of our “stuff”: clean out, clear out, throw away, give away. And gain some victory (however small) over my perpetual nemesis, disorganization. All of which are, as I said, somewhat nebulous goals, subject to all sorts of other considerations like time and whim.
Looking…ahead to 2012 and all the changes that await us, the biggest being the high school graduation of our oldest son and sending him off to school in August. Wow.
Resting…in the sovereign goodness of the Lord, knowing that He will supply our every need and that following hard after Him is the highest and best resolution we can make!
Wishing…you all a happy and blessed new year, full of the grace and peace that comes from knowing Christ!
