This year I have big goals. And I have small ones. I have made lists and action plans. I evaluated what I really care about doing and keeping in the busy stage we are in as a family. I looked at things I do well and things I need to be better at. I have prayed over them and reflected. We have some unknowns looming in front of us. And when I prayed for a focus I hear, Peace. I want to live in it, radiate it, pass it out like candy. I want to tuck it all around my boys like warm blankets.
And then we got the flu. The weeks I am most productive are the weeks before school starts in August and the week between Christmas and the new semester of school. I was cleaning out closets and cabinets that hadn't been touched in years and then Bam. The flu. We had to cancel our trip to Auburn for a basketball game, a present to the boys. And my new workout, meal plan endeavor into self discipline has been postponed. But strangely I have peace I can pick it up Monday. There are other games to buy tickets to. The rest of the closets will get organized. Slow down. Rest in His peace.
I am already building lists of His gifts to us in 2015. Getting four scripts of Tamiflu on a holiday. My sweet mother in law driving from Birmingham to bring us dinner. Being able to give our tickets away to a friend on Facebook and then seeing pictures of them enjoying the game. Extra time to read and snuggle.
Wishing you Peace in 2015 and that you will accomplish your goals :)
