Into A New Year

I've been wanting to get a post up, but for the life of me I haven't been able to find a good time to sit when I will not be interrupted by one thing or another, and I honestly didn't know what to write. I feel like I have been in a bit of a slump, maybe because I tend to write about daily life and not a specific theme; entertaining, organization, etc..and maybe I haven't felt like daily life has been all that exciting. In fact, this post has been sitting on my computer for 3 days now and I have YET to finish it.

As I've taken time to read other blogs, facebook posts, etc.. so many people having been talking about their goals and resolutions for 2011, I've realized that I haven't really thought to make any of my own or as a family. I'm not one for resolutions, but I'm all for setting goals (my hubby not so much). It wasn't that I didn't want to set any, I just didn't. I still haven't, but I will...maybe. I've just been thinking about them...and doing dishes, and taking down Christmas decor, getting the girls back on track with school, getting myself back on track with exercising....and haven't taken time to do this.

I was reading yesterday on my friend Sarah's blog (which is great by the way), and she posed two questions that I decided to write down and ponder over the next few days. What are they?

1. What are you passionate about?  2. What are the dreams in your heart?

I want to set goals, but I don't want them to be out of reach of attaining. I want them to be simple and ones that will make a difference in everyday life.

As I step back and look at all that took place in 2010, I see some things I want to do differently, I see areas that I need to grow in, areas I need to focus on. I see things that maybe I need to let go of for now, simply because of the season of life we are in. Whether my goals turn out to one or twenty doesn't matter. What matters is that I feel them in my heart, not out of a sense of "duty".

At 11:11 on 1/1/11, 11 people from our church did a prophetic run through our city. Kat and hubby and a few others rode their bikes. Nan and I manned one of the water pit stops.
Here's to an amazing 2011!

With Joy UNquenchable,


  1. I haven't made any resolutions either, but I love those two questions. I'm going to be giving those some thought.

    Your photos are so beautiful! It's obvious that photography is one of your passions. :-)

    Happy 2011 to you!

  2. Thank you Kristen. I do love taking pictures. They are usually of my girls playing soccer but I have fun.

  3. I saw a good list of questions on another friend's blog - I'll message it to you on fb.
    I saw 11:11 on 1/1/11, too, but I didn't get a picture of it - glad that you did!

  4. Thanks for the shout out!

    You may not have a theme, but your hospitality has inspires me so much! It comes so natural. I would love to be as comfortable and thoughtful as you are when it comes to hosting!

    I hope you'll share your goals :)
