Not to mention, so happy to meet you Miss January. Especially since you are giving us a winter. I have missed winters. Rain is very nice too. I can stop being mad at the weatherman and his dire predictions.
"Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
I always feel like I should just say, " If the Lord Wills."
I do have a word or two for the coming year.
I admit to hearing the words in my head. " We need the room in this class for students that have creativity. In my years of teaching, I have never met a student with no creativity."
When I was getting my new calendars ready for the new year, I ran across this quote in my Susan Branch calendar. " Hear your inner voice. If it's not saying nice things Change It... Its yours and it is trainable.
I sat just astounded. You mean, I can train it. That thought never dawned on me. So I will be training that inner voice to say nice things, so the fear of failure becomes the joy of creating and enjoying the journey. I can only change those thoughts as I renew my mind. Romans 12-2
"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. reasoning and to destroy false arguments."
The second thing on my list is my what I create. I call this the year of samplers. When I was young, I had my new house. A new baby and a new life. In that house, I wanted to make samplers. Here is the first one I made.
Here are my patterns for this year, 2015

I am excited about welcoming a new year. One filled with hope. I know that sadness will come. I know there will be hard things that happen. I know that there will be surprises, and u turns and different roads to go down. I know there will be new doors to open and as always there will be good byes. My heart says though, that every day can be a new beginning. Every morning a new adventure. Every sky can have a bit of blue even if there are clouds. All of it can be for good. I am so excited to be blessed with a new year. I wish the same for you who take your time to visit and I am so thankful for your friendship and the kindness you shower me with daily.
Happy New Year 2015
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take."
