The Old, the New and the Thankful

Hi! I finally feel like I can take a breath after the rush of Christmas, holidaying and visiting my niece and sister in hospital (see prev blog post for more details).

Some reflections:

The Old

The year is nearly over, so what memories, what attitudes, what hurts do I want to take with me into the new year… What lessons–whether they be life lessons, writing/craft lessons, or lessons from God do I want to make sure to carry with me into 2013? Also what stinky attitudes, judgements, or mistakes will I make sure to leave behind? It’s worth pondering. Sometimes what we think or carry with us needs a spring clean as much as the hallway cupboard.1930564_8c2f_625x1000

The New

What new thing do I want to learn? Goals to set? Writing goal I want to achieve?? Which relationships do I want to put more time into? Which friends do I want to encourage? What skill/character trait do I want to see developed in my children? What about you? Any ideas/thoughts ticking over along these lines?

The Thankful

2012 has been a wonderful year for me. I have learned so much, experienced so much beyond my wildest dreams. God has taken me on a grace-filled journey to bless, encourage and strengthen me. He’s pretty cool. 🙂 Thank you to my fellow bloggers, faithful readers and dear friends. I’ve enjoyed your comments, your support and your friendship.

Here’s to another year with God at the helm. 🙂
