I've been thinking a lot lately.  Over thinking things really.  In fact  I think, that I've been thinking so much that I am not doing anything.  Christmas break officially ended Wednesday, and then it officially, officially ended when Kev went  out of town again on Thursday.  By mid-morning on Thursday I decided that my self-discipline and motivation were "officially" still on break.
Gus is doing a lot of thinking too
I felt so motivated at the beginning of 2012.  This year I keep asking myself if I have resolutions, and if I do what are their purposes?
I wandered around my house that last few days in search of what it is that I am supposed to be doing, feeling frustrated  and almost board.  I was trying to explain it to Kev as bordem, but one is certainly never bored raising two little girls....
I wrote that top part earlier today. Before I sat down to finish up this post I read this quote from this blog
"I hope that you will be given all that you need to feel comfort in what it is you are created for."   

I know that we were all created for one specific purpose, to bring glory back to the Father, but in that I think that in our lives there are many different ways we accomplish that.  That quote speaks to me about purpose and sticking with that purpose.  It kind of energizes me to stop wandering and just do.   I just know I have to do something.  I have to be present, I do not have to be perfect.  
I certainly wasn't perfect when I dressed myself on this day...hmmmm????

The second encouragement I received this afternoon came in the mail.  I knew that there was a surprise Christmas gift that I had not opened yet.  Kev told me that it was coming in the mail and it was going to be our theme for the year.  I really thought it was going to be something technical because that is just who he is.  To my surprise there were  two t-shirts in the package that say "Go outside and play."  I think I needed a theme for our year.   I think I love the one he picked.
I am excited about this year.  I know it going to be an exciting one for us.
Here's to less wandering and more doing.

Grace and Peace
