Hello 2010!!

Here we are, at the brink of a new decade :). As I look ahead to the coming year, I wonder at the potential it holds. This past year has been about "equilibrium." Finding life's solid ground again and enjoying it very much!! These days, it seems, we've entered a plateau around here. One that it is, for the most part, very refreshing. After climbing several of life's mountains and entering into various valleys over the last decade, a plateau is very much appreciated :). One that I don't take for granted, nor believe is meant to last forever, either. As always, we are journeying on, overcoming new challenges, enjoying new vistas.

This year will see us once again embrace change. We will be adding one more member to our motley crew :), Little M will enter into the school system, Sweet K will likely begin preschool one morning a week, and I will continue to process and transition in the midst of all of this (likely on even less sleep, which should be verrrrry interesting!!!).

But one thing remains: 

Our God is a God of love, and love never fails.
1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, 
but have not love, 
I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 
2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, 
and if I have a faith that can move mountains, 
but have not love, 
I am nothing. 
3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, 
but have not love, 
I gain nothing.

 4Love is patient, 
love is kind. 
It does not envy, 
it does not boast, 
it is not proud. 
5It is not rude, 
it is not self-seeking, 
it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. 
6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 

7It always protects, 
always trusts, 
always hopes, 
always perseveres.

 8Love never fails. 

But where there are prophecies, they will cease; 
where there are tongues, they will be stilled; 
where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 
9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 

10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 

11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, 
I reasoned like a child. 
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 
12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; 
then we shall see face to face. 

Now I know in part; 
then I shall know fully, 
even as I am fully known.

 13And now these three remain: 
and love. 
But the greatest of these is love.

My desire for this year is LIVE WELL, LOVE WELL.
More to come on this, as I reflect on my goals that I set last year and form some for 2010.
