Welcome 2010!

It's the beginning of a new decade! I somehow missed that piece of info because no major attention, like that in 2000 with Y2K, was given to it. And yet, I'm not sure that will affect how I approach this year.

I've been doing a lot of reading lately and have lots of ideas in mind for my new one-word resolution, but I've had a hard time trying to narrow it down. Here are some of the things that have caught my attention:

--to live and love and blog boldly (courtesy of MckMama)

--to live free of the world's expectations (courtesy of Ted)

--to pray new prayers (courtesy of Ann Voskamp) & ask for His perspective

--to give increasing attentiveness to His presence (courtesy of Krista)

--to simply enjoy the moment(s)

So, I'm just going to ponder this a bit more.

In the meantime, I'm really enjoying the devotional I've selected for this year: Streams in the Desert. So far, the messages have been perfectly timed - exactly what I've needed to hear each day.

So what are you planning to read this year?

Wow-- love that we are on that particular road together. (I happen to LOVE Streams. Meant SO much to me while waiting on Julia!)

I read Streams in the Desert a couple of years ago. It's a good one that you will want to return to down the road. I'm reading Daily Light (Anne Graham Lotz).
