  1. Normally, I would totally agree with you.
    But in the space of a year I have changed jobs, changed house, changed from meat-eater to vegetarian (a harder change to manage than I ever thought it would be), and my adult daughter has moved back home with me (also challenging to adjust to).

    2010 was my year of change. 2011 is to be my year of same and I am so excited about it.

  2. I second Lynne’s comment. God moved a lot of things around last year for me as well and I am sensing Him asking me to be still, at least for the time being. I guess though, in a way, that is ‘fresh and exciting’ and a new way to begin the year! I did not make resolutions except to get to know Him more. I want this year to be about Him and not about me. I am excited to see where that does ‘take me’!!
