I am sitting here in wonder. First, I have a few moments to write on the blog! Wow! But an even bigger "wow" is how fast this year has passed me by. I honestly feel that it has just begun, and, yet, here we are at the end. I have been dreading looking at the calendar as I prepare to do our family newsletter. I am not sure if I am ready to remember some of what has occurred, but I do know that God has been faithful through it all.
So, for this post, I thought I would remind you that along with the newsletter that I do a the end of this year (or should I say the beginning of next year?), I have also been adding a portion related to my "word of the year". Last year was my first year doing this, and I have found it to be a truly interesting way that God has allowed to build awarenes in my heart to what He has to teach me, and it has given me a different perspective on my trials. Before deciding on that perfect word, I waited for confirmation, and, so... the word for this year was, and still is for some days more, "SIMPLICITY".
I assure you that the word has not been my year. It has had a lot to do with the lessons I have learned, the value put to certain actions, the appreciation for certain people and their efforts to be a part of my life. I will go into further explanation as I think on it some more and stew on what God has been working in, through, and for me. I hope you will "stay tuned".
Blessings as you prepare for Jesus' birthday celebration. May even this time of prepping be a blessing and encouragement to your heart.
