I struggled with writing this post.
I read so many good 2014 posts and so many good words that people chose.
And I thought. I prayed. And I came up with a lot of good words.
But that is exactly the problem. I am a take-on-too-much, do-all-the-good-things kind of person.
When I look back over 2013, it was a good year and it was a full year but I don't know that I fully lived or enjoyed all of it.
When I was with friends, I confess to thinking about the things I need to do for the shop, or my home, and when I'm working on the shop, I am thinking about the other things I could be doing. Simply put, I am rarely good at being content in the moment -- present with others or the situation.
This year I want to be present before God, so I can focus on Him, His calling and His plan for me.
I want to be present with others, to listen and step into my relationships more fully.
Wherever I am -- at my day job, sewing late at night, or sitting on the couch with the husband watching SNL reruns, I want to be present.
I don't want to set up a bunch of little goals -- although I'm tempted to! -- I just want to focus on this one thing and pray that life will flow from that.
Do you have a word? Or goals?
