Happy New Year--2014

Last night I stayed up until the New Year came.   It’s like Halloween crossing to All Saints Day.  You can imagine something magical happened.  And everything feels new and fresh, full of promise.   I know it’s psychological but I love to see one year end and another begin.   
I was disappointed at how many of my friends and family went to bed early this year.  It makes me realize how different things are now.  Used to I might actually be the first to go to sleep…no, I don’t think I’ve been the first to crash. 
I don’t have any resolutions this year.  I guess if I did it would be to continue to enjoy life and not be the first to crash.
Plans for this year…at least for now:
1.    Continue with Celebrate Fridays—it’s good to focus on the little victories.
2.    Blog at least on Fridays.
3.    Continue cleaning out my house—new approach is Live with Less. 
4.    Continue progress on novel—but not stress over it.  It’s my story.  It’ll get written when it gets finished.
(more plans as they come to mind…)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Prov. 3:5-6


  1. New Year is an excellent time to make plans and look ahead. Like you I haven't made any resolutions as such but there are things I want to achieve during the year.

    Happy New Year.

  2. You have good plans for the New Year, Bethie. Trusting in the Lord is he most important. Have a good year.

  3. What a good perspective on it. Thanks for sharing your insight on the New Year--and for visiting my blog!

  4. My resolution this year was to contact someone I hadn't contacted in a long time. You won! Shoot me an email and let me know how you are. Miss your face, Beth...and your awesome laugh.

    *my name might give it away, but FCC, Todd, Steve, etc, might, too*
