The past few days have been filled with taking down our Christmas decorations and organizing. It’s fun to give my house a blank slate to work with but it’s also really daunting… everything looks so bare and boring now. On the plus side, everything is down so AJ is re-drywalling the crumbling walls of the living room. I’d say we are starting 2015 with a fresh start.
I’ve really been thinking over my goals for this year. 2015. As I’ve looked back on the past year I saw so many specific goals that weren’t accomplished and decided this year to get a little more broad with our plans, you’ll see more of them on the blog next week… and to give an overarching theme to this year.
At the end of the year I want things like simplicity, growth and success, of course, but really what I want most is transformation. I want to see how God is going to transform my life if I let Him. I want to take time for what matters most instead of trying to do everything and getting burnt out by it. I want my thoughts toward my family and friends, the blog, our house projects and business ventures to be transformed to be increasingly healthy and focused on Christ. One of my biggest wishes for the year is to discover where I should be putting my time… what are the areas of my life I need to cut back on and what are the areas I need to focus more on?
Here’s to a year of having my, and hopefully your, minds and actions transformed by a powerful and life-giving God!
