This morning I picked up The Message, Eugene Peterson's modern English paraphrase of the Bible, and opened to Genesis 1. There's something so refreshing about new beginnings. Tim and I sat down with coffee and read together Genesis 1-2 and Psalm 1 (day 1 from my Bible-in-a-year plan). It was a sweet morning, and one I hope we can repeat often this year.
What will this year hold for me? The question makes me laugh. Oh, one can always make plans, but it's the Lord who holds my life in His hands.
"I know, O Lord, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps."Jeremiah 10:23
