A Time for Quiet Reflection

I’ve purposely avoided talking about the holidays here this year. Not because I couldn’t come up with any ideas, (on the contrary – I had over a page full), but more because this last month has been a time of quiet reflection for me.

A time to reflect on where I am at personally and professionally, and where I want to be, and a time to seek God’s wisdom as to which path to continue on.

At one point, I even contemplated shutting down this blog, but then within two days had more complements on the blog than I’ve ever had, so I guess you are stuck with me :) (thank you dear friends!!)

Each year I take the time to reflect, set goals, figure out what I should work on for the next year, but this year is a little different.

I took a look at all the things that I want to accomplish and asked myself, which would make the biggest difference in my life, in my family’s life. 

And it came down to two things. 

Accomplishing these two items – and they are big ones – would signficantly affect (positively) my relationship with my husband, with my children, and my health. 

 To accomplish such big things requires a strength and will that is much greater than my own, and I really needed this time to look within and confer with God on whether I could do this, whether I should.

I’m still in a reflection, planning mode, but am easing out of it, ready with God’s help to do what is necessary to break free and deal with these two areas of my life.

Please pray for me, for direction, for wisdom, and for strength. 

52 weeks to accomplish big things – it’s a short time, but with God’s help all things are possible. I believe that He wants me to move forward, to break free this year. But with belief must come action. For our favorite saying during times of intense effort is “Faith is an action word”.

As you contemplate your year, please celebrate your successes and then I hope you’ll take some time to spend with God and learn what areas will most impact your path going forward.

2010 is a good year. I can feel it. Can you?
