On this last day of 2014...
The tree still looks so nice, and makes the living room feel so cozy. For some reason, I'm not ready to take it down yet!
Snow! We did not have a white Christmas. But it's snowing today! And if you're an almost 6-year old, and there's snow on the ground then there is no reason to 1) walk on the shoveled path or 2) walk in a straight line. I love this picture, it depicts my daughter's personality so well:
Dishes! Lots of dishes to do today for some reason...
Half-day for Kevin so lots of family time today and tomorrow!
And finally, a thought for the coming year from the December 31st devotional in My Utmost for His Highest:
As we go forth into the coming year, let it not be in the haste of impetuous, forgetful delight, nor with the quickness of impulsive thoughtlessness. But let us go out with the patient power of knowing that the God of Israel will go before us. Our yesterdays hold broken and irreversible things for us. It is true that we have lost opportunities that will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past rest, but let it rest in the sweet embrace of Christ.
Leave the broken, irreversible past in His hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.Find the rest here.
May your last day of 2014 be blessed as you ring in the New Year!
