5 Intentions

I can not believe 2014 is coming to a close! This year started on a sad note and is ending on a happy note. Today also marks my blog being a year old! I am so blessed to be blogging and I can not wait for a new year of blogging!

This coming year I want to do 5 intentions for the new year as opposed to doing a New Years resolution. I want to challenge you to do the same. Let’s be intentional. Let’s become more like Jesus and less like the world. The 5 intentions that I want to work on are in 5 areas in my life. Health, Spiritual, Personal Challenge, Friendships, Marriage. 
 My 5 Intentions For 2015:
1. Health: I am getting back into yoga. I was introduced to Holy Yoga, and I love it! I am going to do a more in depth post on Holy Yoga and how it has benefited me health wise as well as spiritually. 
2. Spiritual: I want to be intentionally joyful as well as thankful. I want to be teachable and start praying more. 
3. Personal Challenge: Learn to use my gifts to bring glory to God. 
4. Friendships: To build and cultivate all of my friendships. Not allowing my intervert personality to be an excuse. 
5.Marriage: To serve my husband with my whole heart and to do so joyfully! 
 
What are you 5 intentions for this coming year?

A Belated Christmas

I am so excited for this up coming year and can not wait to share with you what’s new! May you have a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends and I will post on the 31st!

Love you all,

Winter Wonderland

Sitting in Dunkin Donuts with some ladies from church, when I looked up and saw it was snowing. I am not a huge fan of snow, but it does remind me of God’s grace covering sins.

When Colin got home from running errands, he asked me to go for a walk with him. Now anybody who knows me, knows that I am not a fan of being cold. However, Colin looked so excited that I decided to just suck it up and go with him to one of our favorite parks.

As cold as I was, it was a pretty place in the snow.

I think most of all the important thing is that we got to spend the time together. We also finished up our Christmas shopping and everything is wrapped. It is coming up fast this year. It is so nice to be able to enjoy the rest of the holiday just with family and friends. Over all we had a pretty stress-free season, which is nice. Last year ended up being last minuet!

We also decorated the tree the day after Thanksgiving:

My brother Michael had his first choir concert and I was so proud of him! He did an amazing job!

Took a selfie with some of my siblings 🙂

(Sorry the picture was fuzzy; I had my three year old brother in my lap)

So far the Christmas season is in full swing! How is your holiday preparations coming along?
