Happy (belated) New Year!



I have been on vacation for the past two weeks and last night I was not looking forward to going back to work. I was dreading waking up earlier then 8am and driving through traffic again! I even had to remind myself how to get to work and this morning I missed my turn, I'm not even sure where my mind was taking me. lol. Once I got to my desk this morning, I did take a moment to thank God for giving me this job and always keeping me safe through my morning commute. There are so many ways something could have gone wrong in just minutes. There are so many distracted drivers, that I could of not  made it in today. Again, Thank you God for your protection. 

I have so much to share from Christmas, New Years and a baby session I did but I got to work with no memory card in hand to upload today. oops! (Blame the vacation!) Instead I thought I'd share what's in my heart. I don't do this often so take advantage. (jk) 

Next week our church goes into a week of prayer and fasting. Pastor request that we dedicate 3 full days to fasting and the rest is voluntary. Now I don't mean you fast for one day and break it at dinner, this is 3 full days of no food and just water. We do this every year together as a church. I won't say how many days I'll be fasting but one thing that did resonate in my heart was what Pastor said on Tuesday, "If you have a little need, then you'll fast a little, choose how long you fast based on the need" and I do believe the Lord knows my needs so I'm dedicating next week fully to that purpose. There will be no blogging next week.

Once new year day came everyone asked what my new year resolution is and I don't think there's anything wrong with making resolutions. why not? If it helps motivate you, then go for it! I just didn't put too much thought into it this year so my answer was, I don't have one. lol. I do feel like I have made improvements in myself since last year that I am already happy with, like I don't procrastinate as much, I stay on budgets, I check off my list of things to do and I am WAY more organized now too! Woo hoo, I feel like such a big girl! ha!

There is a phrase that Pastor said often last year and maybe I'm the only one that picked up on it because it spoke to me, "Thank God for what He is going to do." Basically thank Him in advance and trust that He is already answering, opening the doors, providing etc. For this new year I am going to keep Thanking Him for all that HE is doing in my life and all that HE has already done.

Thank you God!
