I've been a lazy blogger this week.
I've been enjoying having my husband home and my family all around me.
I haven't cooked since the pre-Christmas and Christmas day non-stop cooking marathon.
We've been surviving on the leftovers.
Today, the Hubs and I had a date.
We did a little antiques looking and some gift card spending at World Market,
then went out for a delicious late lunch.
When we got home, I put on my pajamas and climbed in my bed at 5 p.m.,
my Bible and journal and my computer with me.
It feels heavenly to be lazy after all of the holiday busy-ness.
The day after Christmas, the Hubs and I, with assistance from my grandson,
undecorated the whole house.
I was ready for things to be clean and uncluttered and back to normal
after having the Christmas decorations up since right after Thanksgiving.
Last night, my three daughters and I had a girl's night out and went to see Les Miserables.
We all loved it.
Well, now that I've told you more than you want to know about what I've been up to,
I'll explain the photo of the chalkboard and verse in my dining room.
For quite a few years now, I've prayed and asked God to give me a theme word and/or verse
for the coming new year.
Last year, my word was DELIGHT.
The year before it was HOPE.
This year, can you guess what it is?
I find that I'm good at saying I trust God,
but then I try to fix things, situations, circumstances, and even people, myself!
God, has been showing me, that when I really trust Him and take my hands off,
He does amazing things.
So, what have you been up to since Christmas,
and do you have a verse or word for 2013?
