So, it’s day six of the new year and today is the first day I’ve even thought about New Year’s Resolutions. I guess with Lydia’s birthday so soon after Christmas and the New Year, I feel like it’s just a continuation of the holidays. Fun for her, tiring for me.
I’ve never been one to make resolutions…or maybe I just don’t stick with them. Regardless, I am facing this new empty page of a year with hopes for…well, for MORE. Of course, I’m not meaning more STUFF, in fact, I’d like LESS of the junk that fills up our house. What I want to see is more organization, more discipline, more focus on the quotidian, more fun, more development of Lydia and Asa, more growth and just MORE. One of my very favorite verses is from Ephesians 3:20…
Now to him [God] who is able to do immeasurably MORE than all we ask or imagine, according to his power at work that is within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
And that is what I want for this year. I want to see MORE than I could even ask for or imagine. More than I could articulate in a list of resolutions. I just want MORE for my family, my daughter, my son, my husband, for myself. And I pray the same for you.
