May this year be set apart for You, consecrated simply for Your glory alone and may we find You Father in each of our search for knowledge… bring us closer to You, revealing Your mysteries and steadfast love to us. That our motivation for each day would be to walk carefully… in love… as we wait expectantly for our Lord to come bring us home. May you submerge our hearts and minds in Your grace and our lips in Your praise. May this year be a year of prayer. Lord, give us all a willingness to be servants loving oneanother as You love us… a daily surrender to Your will for ours in any circumstance… insignificant or life changing as it may be. Fill our hearts with the JOY of our salvation found in Christ… let nothing take it away from us and when we are tested… bring us through the fire with our faces shining like angels. Each day is Yours, we simply borrow each breathe… guide our hearts, our minds and our emotions into Your peace and Your wisdom… it is Your presence we seek… may we find You here each day through all the papers, books, words, letters, numbers, chores and knowledge.  Amen.

So I stayed up late and planned out our year, kind of. I decided not to be to detailed and specific this year but just allow for a more delightful path of structure. I don’t want to feel like I have to do a certain lesson a certian week if it just isn’t working out that way and cause a rebellion to stir up with in me, you know tell me what exactly to do and I automatically feel the urge to rebel against it… evenmy own rules?! I didn’t include all subjects just the ones I felt I really needed some gentle guidance and encouragement for the year.

Do you want to see it?

I do 😉 I worked hard on it and it is so pretty. I like colors…
