It is February 1st! February the month of love and hubs’ birthday. I have no idea how it happened but he will be 70 this month. How can it be? And, I’m not too far behind him! He has less gray hair than I do but is braver than I am and let’s his show – he keeps mine colored! Remember, he spent most of his lifetime doing hair as a professional hairdresser!
January has been a month of writing and words and it has been well worth it! 40 Days of Lent will be ready within a week and I must admit, I am excited. A devotional for the 40 days of Lent has been a to-do for about three years – the Lord doesn’t forget things and toward the end of 2016 He said, “Now is the time.”
It’s been a month of resting too – someone asked me how one writes a book and rests at the same time! Let me put it this way, I know when to walk away from the screen and vegetate! That sounds lovely, right? Well, true confessions: the nativity is still out, the snowmen are still out, and the tree of Hope still has Christmas ornaments. But, the kitchen is clean and the floors vacuumed and the bed is always made! Those are worth a few points, yes?
We’ve squeezed in two short visits with our kids and packed them tighter than a can of sardines. We’ve celebrated a birthday and we almost bought a car (another story for another time). We’ve planned a trip and we’ve shoveled snow. We’ve fed the birds and read books!
And I’ve drank enough lemon-ginger tea I could float!
January, you were good and I’ll miss you but here’s to February adventures, hearts, flowers, and lots of lemon-ginger cuppas.
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God…2 Corinthians 3.5
