we're enjoying the days and nights together over here in the frozen tundra.
our weekend was spent in full hibernation mode.
it's ridiculously cold out, and cabin fever is burning us up.
grateful for family, electricity, netflix, good books and cheesecake.
speaking of cheesecake, i gained back the two pounds i lost last week.
but this week. there will be less cake and more lemon water.
less whining and more smiling. plenty of laughing and no sass talking.
i mean, it's hard to believe, but sass talking is my native tongue.
visiting with my mom while she's here and enjoying my husband being home from work.
this week will be great.
when the year began, i had big plans to start a new bible study.
january is nearly closing up shop and i've yet to settle on something.
elijah's off from school and therapy today!
taking it easy is my favorite, but it's so important for us to keep his days structured no matter what.
this is sometimes easier said than done.
speaking of structure, i'm working on getting better organized.
this includes closets, cupboards, dressers, checkbook, blog, shop...nothing is safe.
i sorta lost my mojo these last few months, and it's time to reign it in. organization.
in my home, and in my heart. it could even be called a "new year's resolution".
but i don't make those.
i've been a fan of this shop for awhile, but only recently noticed this print.
working on that.
when i think of what lies behind, i want to think wisely.
dwelling on the past "what if" and "i wish i would not have" is unproductive and exhausting.
i want to only think on it long enough to see areas where i can pray and work toward improvement.
just enough thought to see the goodness of the lord. and how he kept me.
by the grace of god, i want to glean wisdom from yesterday.
the winter season can be tough. it can be a prime growing season for despair.
praise jesus for his light!
shining brightly and reminding me that joy and gratitude can bloom even in the most frigid spells.
i choose to see that when i look back, and as i face tomorrow.
linking up with carissa today, join us!
