Crazy how time flies. Already a few days into this new year of 2011. 2011. That’s a weird year to type out. Maybe by April I will naturally write the correct year in my checkbook.
I usually LOVE new years…new starts, new goals, a time to clean out drawers, buy new calendars, start a new journal, and on and on the newness could go.
I seem to have a different take at this new year. It’s not that I don’t still love the new calendars and journals; it’s just that I am not so much into setting any plans this year. We are in such a place that I have never planned for that I have to fight throwing up my hands when it comes to planning. I mean, really, we are in control of so very little…almost nothing…maybe nothing at all. I still haven’t figured that out. HOWEVER, this isn’t meant to be a hopeless sort of non-planning…just a new freedom that is coming from trusting the Lord, I hope.
So instead of planning what size jeans I intend to wear by Spring or how many miles I want to be able to walk or how much savings we should have squirreled away by this time next year, I think I will settle in on just a couple of very simple things.
