Saturday morning breakfast with the ladies & discussing our new book.
Mornings aren’t my thing, but when I can sip coffee, talk about Jesus and life — then they’re a bit more bearable.
always a phone call or text away. seriously, she’s been such a kind, wise, sweet, lovely friend. Not only since we’ve followed each other on tumblr, but especially the past two or three weeks, in this difficult time — no words, lady, can express my gratitude.
Help me to listen, to love, to appreciate, to stop, to embrace, to make mistakes — and then learn from them. Help me to read more, for my own pleasure. Help me to get out of my small box, to explore more, to buy myself flowers just because, help me to accept change better, to check off my 20’s list — as best I can.
My new year, help me to stay active in new ways — go skydiving and don’t put it off, run more and consistently, try something new. Save more, because I know my more “adult years” are coming quickly! Make others a priority over me, love them — though it may be difficult.
Oh, and don’t let me be so hard on myself (though at times it’s good). Help me to accept myself and my mistakes — don’t let me dwell on the past. I’ve got far too much life ahead of me to dwell. Reach out to new friends, new relationships, new acquaintances — they may not work out, or they may stick in my life forever. Let them happen or you’ll never know.
Finally, my new year, help me keep focused on the one thing in life that matters most — Christ. Help me to gain strength in Christ, daily, to know Him more, to be reminded of Him when I stray (because He knows I will). I need His help to love Him more, and help me to not give up. Help me to remind myself that I’ll make it through — I always do, with Him.
It’s been a good one 2012,
