January feels like a fresh start and time for a deep breath.
It's time to reflect on last year and wonder and dream about the coming year.
It's time to remember how much my boys have grown and changed in the last 12 months. And soak up each moment since more growing and changing will happen this year.
I know 2010 holds big things for us. My son David may have a surgery this year. We will continue to work on paying off our debt this year. Matthias will turn six this month (eek!). Steve and I will celebrate 11 years of marriage in July.
I know the Lord has plans for us.
They might be (well, probably are) different from my own plans. I want to be open to what God has for us. I want the desires of my heart to reflect his desires. I want to hold loosely to the things of this world and tightly to the everlasting things.
What are you dreaming about for 2010?
