Sick. For almost three weeks now! In Louisiana for Christmas. Cooking up a storm with my new Kitchenaid stand mixer. Trying new things. Cooking for people.
This post has probably come about a week too late. I haven't really made any resolutions this year. I made goals last year and I stand in amazement as to how far I have come with those goals. My number one goal in 2009 was to develop a personal relationship with God. I think I have definitely made a good start there. Once I opened the door to cultivate the relationship, the blessings that have come through that door have not stopped. In 2009 I joined a new church, joined a Sunday school class, made new friends, joined a Disciple class, began titheing and have began volunteering with the sandwich ministry (a ministry that feeds the homeless in Atlanta). I have studied the Bible in Disciple class and have loved learning the history. I can't wait to see where my walk with God takes me in 2010.
Which brings me to my next bit of news. I leave next week to attend a Women of Faith training conference in Dallas, TX. My church asked me to attend as a group leader for our church. I'm terrified. After 9/11 I developed a crazy fear of flying. I will be flying to Dallas without any people that I know. Once I am there I will have a roommate whom I don't know. I can't imagine sharing a room as an adult with someone I don't know! Please keep me in your prayers.
We have started renovations on the house again. I will be updating soon with our schedule and some pictures. I feel like I am finally learning how to renovate without losing my mind! I'll be sure and share tips about what is working for me and how I am managing to stay relatively sane.
I wish each of you peace and blessings in 2010. And Love. Lots of love.
