Happy New Year! Everyone ready to return to BSF?
If you have a prayer request or praise, please post a comment below or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get to them ASAP.
My request is the same: For my husband: guidance in his job and his new responsibilities and to be less stressed over work and let God lead the way and not to worry. Prayer for my job as I’m thinking of staying home with my kids again and/or getting a teaching job where I can be with my kids for the summer.
God bless and take care!
I found this nugget on Fox News this morning and had to share. Its argument for reading the Bible is the best I’ve ever read. So consider this a challenge to read the entire Bible in 2015. No other resolution will change your life as much.
This was the words I received from God last night as I was praying about my family and everything else in my life and about what I needed to do.
I’m once again going through some major changes. We are moving to a place I’ve never lived before. I have quit my newspaper column, which took a major impact on me emotionally (I don’t think I will ever return to such an endeavor. It is too easy to knock people in today’s society of the Internet and I want to be loving, not argumentative). Homeschool has hit a bump in the road. I think we all need a much deserved break.
On top of all this, I feel no Christmas spirit, which is rare for me as this is usually my favorite time of the year. We won’t have a tree as we are moving. We have to stay with my in-laws again for a week until our house is ready (never pleasant). Plus, a personal complaint: I hate moving in the winter. I told my husband never again but here we are.
The last 6 months have been a huge strain on me and I think the whole family suffered because of it.
So focus on the family is going to be my top New Year’s Resolution. This includes everything: physical, spiritual, mental, etc. And this includes myself as well. Focus on the things I need to do to be a better wife, mother, and pet owner (although I think the dogs are doing quite well. They are both happily sleeping on my bed at this very moment).
I think the rest (personal, professional, and passion goals) will fall into place once I realign myself with God and what’s the most important thing in my life.
