Did you stay up late? Bring in the New Year or did you find yourself exhausted and head to bed early? Regardless of what you did... may this New Year be one of growth, enlightenment and the knowledge of God's goodness in your life :)
At this time of year you tend to find a lot of "this is my word for the year" or "this is my verse for the year" posts. I find those posts fascinating reading. I really do, they give insight into the person behind the blog you know? When I find some that I particularly enjoy I will link them up here. :)
Some word posts: Life. Cultivate. Growth. Simplify. Restore. Crave.
So my top post of the year on this blog has been
My post on the poem "I think mice are rather nice!" This poem brings back so many smiles.
here and here. It is fun to find inspiration for doing art and then teaching classes using those books.
missionary posts and hymns primarily). I find that information interesting as I don't get a lot of comments on those posts, it is so good to know they are being used.
On my current site people find me through it was a little harder to determine. This site was dormant for a couple of years as I had consolidated much of what I did through my weebly site. BUT when I look at why people visit, the field trips, studies on Ezekiel and hymn studies are getting some attention. So I have hopes that what I post will prove of some use to people. :) Time will tell eh?
So what is new for this year?
I am trying to decide what book I want to work through a chapter at a time on the blog.
Books that I am considering:
- Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family
- The Excellent Wife: A Biblical Perspective
- The Prayer-Saturated Family: How to Change the Atmosphere in Your Home through Prayer
Oh before I forget, I hope (since the lad and I are going to take up a studying the history of Canada course) I want to put up a series on books about Canada. Books the help us get to know her history, her people, her geography and what not. I hope to find a variety of arts and crafts that will help us in our journey. Hopefully once a week I can do up something interesting from our studies. Won't that be fun? It'll be a fair amount of behind the scenes work finding things to do.. but should be good.
Anyways, I'm linking this up at Kym's blog this week. :)
