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!
