So how has your start to the New Year been? We’re thinking it hasn’t really started until the holidays are over. Actually, each new month is a reason to start afresh–as well as each new week, each new DAY!
Our reading this morning (the same verse we shared last year), says “Start with God–the first step in learning is bowing down to God.” (Prov. 1:7) Therein is our theme for today: Wisdom. But The Mom likes the theme in her email Verse-of-the-Day, about resting… “At the end of the year, it sure is nice to be invited to rest in Jesus. [Matt. 11:28] So before we begin a new year, let’s pause and place our hopes, our future, our dreams, and especially our burdens down at his feet and let him give us rest.” Now that would be employing some wisdom! (You may have noticed in yesterday’s meme that The Mom is determining to get better rest at night.)
So to give you a very “restful” activity, how about something that only involves thinking? THINK of all the ways that you already use wisdom, OR ways that you want to be wiser!
Now before we leave the idea of “Review” for the past year, here’s a fun thing that we did last year: copy the first sentence from each month’s journal entry…
Sheesh! We do like to talk about the weather a lot, don’t we?
