January

Have I ever told you that January is my least favorite month?

It is.

The funny thing is that it's the month that starts so many beginnings. We make new goals, set our sites on new and fun adventures, make new lists.

This morning our pastor jokingly asked which of us had already broken some of their resolutions. ;o) How many of you would raise your hands?

I think I dislike January because it's the end of my favorite time of the year. I LOVE fall and the crisp air and way the colors come alive....it's beautiful. Christmas that just brings so many good and happy memories.

January here is just cold and wet and brown. It's hard to find light in this month for me.

There are some really great things happening this month though so I have been asking God for the grace to see those things as blessings. He's faithful....of course! ;o)

Church this morning was amazing, I love our associate pastor. He's got such a great way of sharing the word and having us listen and take notes. ;o) Good stuff!

Next weekend is the teen version of Emmaus. Our daughter will be attending for the first time. She is FINALLY old enough. A very dear friend will be facilitating so I know she is in very Godly hands. I pray He touches each young lady's life in a new and powerful way.

The following week is our last big fundraiser, the Chili Cook off! Do you live close and make a mean chili? Or just love to eat it? Come on down and enjoy... and help a good cause.

The following weekend is Winter Jam! Have you seen the line up?! It's amazing. Newsboys, Third Day... Tony Nolan. It's gonna be off da hook! ;o) (like how I tried to be all young and hip? Did it work?) We will be working with KLove during the program so I think we are going to have a blast!!

Lots of great things happening this month. Not so dark and dreary. It's all in perspective. I am working on changing mine.... Maybe this year January will move up on my least favorite month list. ;o)

Do you have a perspective you need changed?

Answer- ALWAYS!

Will be praying for your daughter:) WE LOVED EMMAUS....and we have helped with college age students who went through too. Praying!

LOVE Winter Jam, and although we may not be as young as we once were....looking for when they will be the closest to us...so we can go!

Aaahhh---can I come to Winter Jam too???? That sounds AWESOME!
I am so with you, friend, January is not my best month. The only good thing about it is that it is one month closer to summer :)

My perspective needs constant changing! I love January though...no changing that one! I make one heck of a chicken chili! Too bad I am so far! I'll make it in your honor that day though!
