It’s been almost a full year since I visited you here. My family had a year of rest and healing from an arduous year in 2014. I hope to reflect on that period someday. For now I’ll continue to put one foot in front of the other and pray for the grace to persevere.
I have many goals for myself this year. Many of which will have me return to my old rhythm of living and a handful that will carry me to new places. I trust that He will lead the way.
Last year I made very little movement in any direction. I remained right where He put me and prayerfully reflected on the crosses that He blessed me with in 2014. That meant that I did not adopt a new word for 2015. My moto remained imprinted on my heart.
Be Useful. serve always.
Be Gentle. have the loving heart, tongue and hand of Mary.
Be Joyful. stay rooted in the true JOY – JESUS. share the JOY with all.
Forget about yourself. die to self, live for God alone.
Pray. speak to God often and cover everything in prayer.
NOW! offer prompt obedience to God’s will for you.
ALL FOR…Jesus through Mary with the intercession of St. Joseph.
I will be adopting a Word of the Year again for 2016. The word was picked to help keep me focused as I reestablish a rhythm in my home. The word is ORDER. May I begin with God and may I end with God!
