Just a few words to open the year. Nothing particularly profound or prophetic. If anything, I find myself approaching this new year slowly. Easing into it, I guess.
Taking a few days to immerse myself in His good word, starting my latest devotional with John at She Reads Truth, opening fresh pages to journal on, setting up my new pocket calendar. The old fashioned kind, paper squares to be penned by hand. All those things that help me set the pace for my days, keep me focused and living in His truth.
My one word has not yet fully been set in my heart, but it is coming. Little clues, randomly appearing, one confirming the next. I know my focus moving forward is family, that keeps presenting itself over and over. The year ended with so many indicators that this is the one thing that requires my undivided attentions. How exactly will unfold. Of this I am quite sure.
Enjoying the unseasonally warmer temps before the artic air moves in (although snow would be nice!) Fending off a seasonal cold, soup simmering and tea flowing. And holding these few days of quiet and solitude dear, for rest and renewal.
Happy New Year to you, my friends.
Family is not an important thing.
It is everything.
