Happy New Years Eve

Here I sit, Grape Nuts floating around in my bowl sweetened by the perfect Mr. Brown Sugar.  With a list of things to do (before 7pm tonight) that would keep a gal busy for weeks, I decided to take a wee break:)  What?!?!

and the creative
...fun list goes on...that's just the chores:)  oh boy nearly 1am.

So why am I here at my computer then?  for good reason.  ....3 reasons actually:

  1. God has blessed me with a lot of really wonderful people in my life. People I love & respect.  
  2. Currently we're renting a home (in transition to our next house) and our space is limited.  
  3. When it was just the 2 of us we loved having people over but haven't made it a priority the past 4 years....we love to throw parties (big or small)

What do these 3 random things have in common?  They're colliding right in front of me and my perfectly decorated life and I watch as they come crashing down in a beautiful display of love, friendship & goofy fun.

I will trust Him....and keep His promises in front of my eyes...and coming out of my mouth!!!!
Let me explain BRIEFLY.  Although you may see me on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook from time to time (ok, often) my life is NOT an open book!  There are many behind the scenes adventures and memories created that I simply don't have time or desire to share.  This year beginning celebration isn't one of them.
I want pictures!  
The pictures you see here are from a neat book we got as a Christmas gift.  I'm going to ask everyone to pick a letter & write or draw whatever they want to share about their vision...dreams....hopes....where they want to be next year, whatever they want to say.
Should be a fun one, huh?!  Also I was trying to figure out a neat "something funky & special" but I'm still working it out...can't spoil the surprise.

We decided to have a SMALL "get together" (as my Honey wants to call it) to ring in the New Year with a full house.  So at church today when I was greeting all my sweetie pie friends I was saddened that I couldn't just open up the invite to a few more people...then a few more of course because so n so is friends with that couple...then another gal is related to the family...oh boy:)  I asked God that every person that needed to be at our house would be....and that's how I roll.....no pressure, guilt  or offense:)  That didn't change the fact that I felt uneasy being all hush hush when I know some of those amazing folks I want here will be seeing the pictures on FB or Instagram.  SO what's better hurt their feelings through all my social media outlets or address it right now, tell 'em I LOVE them and I'm sorry.  please forgive me & remember....when I have MY HOUSE the party will be MUCH bigger.
I want to celebrate BIG!  

Oh and another thing.....
I want to experience God's grace this coming year more than ever as I step into His perfect plan for my life.  I'm not playin' church, folks.  I'm NOT perfect!  FAAAAAARRRR from it actually!  Don't know how I got off on that whirlwind.

I would spend some time editing this so it flows better but I have loads of work waiting and all sweeties are sleeping:)  Ni-Night for all you early birds:0

Live life to the fullest...
cast a vision.....write it down!

  1. You are hilarious! Happy New Year and I hope you get all your chores done. I am gathering the last of the 'things I don't need' and heading off to Goodwill before the end of the day. Love you dear friend......Linda
