Thank You Lord

...for a new year filled with new possibilities.

...for ringing in the New Year with good friends.

...for the beautiful winter wonderland of snow outside our door.

...for new snowsuits, new snow boots, and even newly handmade winter wear!  My girls are set for this season.

...for spending time with family before going back to the normal routine.

...for God's word and time spent studying it with my husband.

...for it being time to pack up the Christmas things.  I loved them while they were out, but it's time!

...for the success of Eco Kids.  I've loved seeing all of the reader's great ideas!  It's nice to builda community.

...for my church

...for the way You reveal yourself in creation.

...for so many new students starting in my studio this month.  Music is truly a gift from you Lord, and I am honored to be able to share it.

...for the workshop I'm signing up for this summer. Thank you for the chance to learn more about music pedagogy.  Plus, the audition that comes after gives me the chance to reconnect with my teacher.  I know that I still have so much to learn from her.

...for (on today, his birthday) 28 wonderful years of memories of my grandpap.

...for babies hugging right before my eyes as I type this... {squeal} So cute!

...for first steps and first birthdays for my nephew.

...for Jesus Culture music.  I can't get enough.

..for getting organized and the new self-serve snack area.

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.  Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

~1 Timothy 6:11-12
