Soared into 2015

The past couple of years I’ve struggled with resolutions, but something that does help guide my year is picking a word to meditate on. This year I thought I’d pick light, because I could study what God’s word says about light, take fun light photography, and focus on being an individual of warmth. But the word “Soar” chose me.


When I arrived in Upstate NY my in laws presented me with a gift. A Willow Tree figurine called “Soar.” It was a sweet congrats regarding the plan to start part time with a counseling agency in town. Honestly, I was feeling a little shy about the partnership, feeling insecure over my lack of skills and that inability to project a strong confidence in interviews. Seeing that gift and their excitement really just melted my insecurities away, and I knew what word I needed to focus on.

(Side note, the job situation is pending case load, so more updates once its all official).

The verse to meditate on will be Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

It is about continuing on the trend of being Anchored in Christ (my word/theme from last year) and being renewed in His strength each day.

It adds neat imagery with the idea of helping others. I picture my role as a counselor (a helper) to help when the bird is stuck in the trap of the sticky oil of bad life decisions, or the world being awful. I get to come alongside and help them learn better thought patterns that frees them and helps them soar in their own lives.

Also, I decided to do a paper agenda for schedule appointments with clients. I’ve missed having a paper agenda. It took me forever, but then I found this simple gorgeous one from Mintgreen at Walmart. (Seriously, I scoured the place and then hubby drove me to another Walmart to get the one that I wanted). It is simple, but boldly colored on the inside. I’ve already taken the liberty of adding some fun feathered stickers to it.

So excited to see what God has in store for me, us this year :0).
