After sleeping in this morning we gathered for brunch and a family meeting in the living room. We marked out our calendar for the rest of the school year and talked about activities that we would like to participate in, trips we have planned, and set goals for how to fit everything in.
The most exciting thing on our immediate schedule is the arrangements we have made for the girls to have weekly ski lessons for six weeks in January and February. None of us have ever been skiing before, even though we live in ski country. They are really looking forward to that! I am hopeful that it will help make the winter not seem so long!
As we begin the new year and set our goals and make our plans, the most important thing to remember is that ultimately God is in control of our lives and we are trusting Him for the future... whatever that may hold!
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
