to celebrate the new year,
B decided that we should get all dressed up.
so, after putting L to bed,
we got fancy.
D made a few announcements
to commence the evening of fun.
and of course,
K and babydoll had something to say as well.
we enjoyed a delicious dinner
(prepared by B)
i was so cold so i had been wearing
the ever fashionable white socks and a jacket with the dress.
(which i of course took off for this photo.)
for some reason, white socks never really look good with a dress.
earlier in the day,
we put Christmas away.
B even brought in his
manly shop vac
to clean up
i love a new start.
a new, fresh start.
which is what a new year provides.
it is also what each new day provides, with Jesus.
i hope to be more disciplined and keep my priorities in check.
my priorities that i am first
everything else comes after that.
i of course loved this blog post.
one thing that i have done
in preparation for this new year is that
i have updated my weekly chore list
(inspired by flylady – the book not the website)
and have it laminated at my kitchen sink.
to remind me day and night what must be done each day.
as my CBS study says, “Expect the Holy Spirit to motivate and strengthen you to obedient and holy living, Commit to acknowledging the Truth and expect Him to transform your life.”
i hope that you may be encouraged and inspired
by what God is going to do
with the freshness and newness
that this new year provides.
i hope you can’t either.
