Wanna Know Something?

We are supposed to be getting tons of snow today but instead, just sleet has fallen. I ran out with the 3 littles and joined the rest of the world in a hustle and bustle race for Christmas shopping. Thankfully, Im back home. Im warm and cozy. Cookies are in the oven. Today will be the day I bake most of my holiday treats. My guests leave my Little Red House tomorrow. I want to send them off with something warm to remember their stay in our home. The kids and I were chatting and decided that our guests will be greatly missed. After a week and a half, we never got tired of talking,laughing or sharing our life with them.
Christmas is in one week. In 8 days, the craziness will be over. As Im in my kitchen mixing and shaping cookies, my New Years resolutions have been weighing on my heart. Im not a big resolution kinda gal, but for some reason, this new year approaching, I feel the need for fresh beginnings. Have you ever felt like that? I have been reflecting on who I am, Who I have become and who I want to be. Sounds heavy huh? Well, not all of it is heavy some of it is rather funny. Before I commit to climb Mt. Everest, write an award winning novel or build a skyscraper, I think I will use the last weeks of 2009 to gather my thoughts, pray and seek God for a great 2010. I know great things are in store for our family, our home and our life... starting from the depths of our cluttered closet, to the depths of our soul. Don't fret my friends, You will all be along for the ride... after all, I need accountability to keep going!
But I just thought I would give you a sneak peak of whats to come. What resolutions are you making for 2010?


  1. I know I am ready for a new year!! Hopefully 2010 will be filled with great things for us!!

  2. We are suppose to get snow today toooo.... Nothing yet? But, who knows what the afternoon will bring. Thanks for stopping by my garden.

    Merry Christmas and Cheers in the New Year.

  3. feeling like starting fresh? OH YES i have felt like that. I think it is needed from time to time. That's when I make my best schedules (or my only ones, since I don't really like schedules), or change up our eating habits to something healthier, or change curriculum, or whatever. When it's "soul" deep, then just let God be your guide. He will renew you and change all that you are ready to change. Be blessed my friend! Merry Christmas!

  4. I have always committed to not making New Year's resolutions, but last year I searched my heart and asked, if I did, what would it be? I felt God was telling me I needed to be more missional in my lifestyle, and talk about him with cashiers at the grocery store, or the librarian. I committed to reading and studying the mighty Acts of the Apostles, so I could learn just how the Holy Spirit could work in me. What an interesting year it has made, my non-resolution!
