“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Lose weight. Exercise more. Declutter. Simplify. Manage finances more wisely. Paint that hallway that has needed it for years. Travel more. Be more intentional. Maybe some of these have been your thoughts as we approach a brand new year. 2016 will bring a clean slate…and what better time to start than January 1?
Butch and I have been discussing some new plans and goals for the year! In addition to getting our eating and exercising back on track, we have been thinking a river cruise in Europe, minor remodeling at our house, and more landscaping! While these things are important, they are not priority.
What about the most important area, our spiritual life? Have we planned our life of prayer and devotion to God’s Word? It is true that we do not know what 2016 will hold for any of us, but I know this one thing: if we trust in the very capable and trustworthy hands of God the Father, we will be safe. When the storms rage, we can be confident that God’s plan will not be thwarted, and his love will never fail us.As we take a look at our top ten posts of the year, we would like to thank you, our readers, for joining us in 2015. You have greatly blessed us with your comments and friendship! Since we started blogging, our hearts have been to honor God in our everyday living…whether that be traveling, cooking, gardening, and even tablescaping. Our lives are His, and we pray that He is at the center of your 2016!
