What is your "theme" this year?

Yesterday I read a post, Looking Back ~ Looking Forward, by Robin at All Things Heart and Home where she shared that each year she asks God for a theme for the coming year. And as expected, or unexpected:-) the Lord reveals lessons in magnificent, painful, glorious, tough ways....blessings full of eternal joy. I thought this was a wonderful idea and hope to hear the "theme" God has planned for me as well!

If you have a theme you think Our Lord is asking of you, pop on over and share it with Robin!

Holy Cards

If you have not seen this blog...

Holy Cards For Your Inspiration...please do so. Each day a new card is shared....I love the vintage ones! This one (today) is just gorgeous --- Mary, angels, baby Jesus and little lamb just really spoke to my heart.

Monday, Monday..

I always sort of dread the week after Christmas. I feel kind of....well....sick....after days and days of baking and eating yummy things with way too much sugar. The stress of hosting family for the holidays always tends to encourage my consumption of the self-medicating substance. Although if you put a bowl of some sort of crunchy, salty combination in front of me it can also soothe my frazzled nerves. Oh who am I kidding....many times I've indulged in the sweet only to then find myself digging for something salty to "balance" it out, LOL!

So today is the day when I go cold turkey and prepare myself for the inevitable withdrawal. When I don't eat sugar...I don't want fine without it. A little chocolate here and there I can deal with but after the holiday sugar blitz it is a little harder to get it under control:-)

And then there are the decorations! Yesterday, hubby asked if I wanted to start putting things away. I feel like I just barely got done getting the house ready so decided to wait another day....maybe tomorrow even:-) I sit here looking at all the decorations that must now be put away I'm feeling a little........anxious.........and those little round cookies covered in powdered sugar are really yummy with a cup of coffee......
