Good Intentions

2016 rolled in with snow, snow, and more snow for us. The ground covered in a thick pillowy blanket, soft and quiet.
The freshness of a new year, Christmas tucked away in grand memories and plastic containers now.
I make a list.
 I like lists because they organize my time. 
They remind me of where I would like to go. 
But nothing too big for me this year. Rather, I would like to look at my days ahead and have a general direction, yet stay steady in my path. Plan my days, make my goals, with a little wiggle room to explore and discover more about the people I share my life with, this beautiful world around me, and to not take for granted time.

Time is such a precious gift, and I don't want to smother it daily with my own intentions.

Rather, this year will be full of consistency, walking ahead with anticipation of what God has in store for each day. I know by surrendering my day to Him, I feel more peace. Talking to Him about every little thing creates a smooth day, a filled day, and a blessed day.

Here is to a wonderful and blessed start to a new year!

Beautiful I get older the less I like it. I am always really to head to FL to the beach when snow is in the forecast. LOL Have a wonderful warm day.

What a wonderful blessed life we live when we live it with His intent for us. It is always so much better than what we plan don't you think? Like you I do have that list going.
