This tree represents my current word for 2013: Breathe. I say current because I usually fall off the word bandwagon after the first six weeks, and then when I revisit it in December I wonder what in the world I was thinking by choosing the particular word that I did. But today I know that taking time to breathe (physically, spiritually and emotionally) is important for me.
I always forget to breathe during Christmas. There are so many things to do, to think about and to accomplish that I find myself running out of the essential resources necessary to keep going.
It was, however, a wonderful Christmas season filled with music, family, worship and fun. Here's one version of our family Christmas photo: Each of us chose a pose that represented what had transpired for us over the past year.
That's a bit of a catch up for now. Happy New Year to all my friends in "Blogland"!
