In the beginning of the year I shared with all of you the word I had chosen for 2010: Create.
I thought I would revisit the topic and share my progress.
To be honest, the first couple of months in 2010 were spent at my in laws. It was hard for me to create a home when it wasn’t, in fact, my home. Not impossible….but very hard.
But praise God He provided us with a beautiful place in March for us to move into and a place that I could begin to dream, imagine and create into a sanctuary for my family.
I have been so excited these past few weeks to plan and make delicious and healthy meals for us. We all sit atthe table at dinnertime and enjoy each other’s company and share about our day.
I spend moments in the morning scouring the best deals so that I can fill our cupboards and home with the things we will need in order to thrive. We don’t have a ton of money left over, so as the one staying at home it is my responsibility to manage our finances.
I have been able to spend time being with my children and my husband in a relaxed setting…as opposed to rushing around trying to find time together due to tight work schedules. Now I can create precious moments with my family in my own home.
I love it.
There is so much more to imagine with this word that I have chosen. I am excited for God to show me how else I can create and how it pertains to me and my family and ministry.
How are you doing with your chosen word?
