This time of year leaves me a bit off kilter. How about you?
The holiday's deliciousness of colors, activities, foods have made their way to my heart (and hips!) and I am a bit tearful putting away the last sparkling things. I suppose it is just this way the older you get and the more memories you have?
The holiday-afters are unique in their bittersweet gifts, aren't they.
A new look at life as the year begins. A letting go and grabbing hold of what it is God is gifting. Are you feeling this too? Too full and still hungry? A new page, chapter, or a brand new book in life to open, but haven't yet? An anticipatory excitement for what is coming -- but deeply quiet, too?
I don't know what it is, but it seems to cover this time of transition every year.
I guess I am a bit tender-hearted this week -- overwhelmed by God's goodness, feeling that holy anticipation of newness, open-hearted to what I am experiencing. All of it brings me to my knees.
Holding last years treasures close to my heart one more time...and getting ready to turn that next page. Perhaps I just needed the extra day to find my center~
I am thinking of you my sweet friends, hoping you have found yourself centered (lol) and excited for this new year! It is going to be good~
In His grace & peace,
