Before the new year 2017 rolled around, I checked out my goals for 2016 and What I accomplished.
Here’s a 2016 recap video
I had a good year in 2016… It started off with me going to bible college for a few months. I started going to tourists places in CA I wasn’t able to go in years past, (because funds was tighy) My two oldest children graducated elementary school, which was a HUGE step for them heading into preteen years (Pray for me), we did a week long cross crountry trip from California to North Carolina as a family, while traveling to cool plates, we ate some awesome southern BBQ, met up with blogger friends, saw some cool sites along the way, It was AWESOME!
The best thing about 2016, was that my husband and I… brought our first home! I’m so in love with our new house. As a family we went house hunting, when we found our home, we fixed it up as a family, it was so nice to experience this as a family, which was my prayer and one of my goals for 2016, I’m so thankful and grateful I was able to catch it all on video and I took lots of pics.
Another cool moment I did in 2016… was cut my hair! Yup, I decided to cut my Locs and I feel AMAZING! I’ve been wanting to cut my locs for years now and I’m so happy I did. I feel beautiful with out my locs and more confident in myself. I’ve had different women complement me and share that they always thought their particular head size wouldn’t fit their face and I always thought that about myself as well. This year I made the leap tand I’m so happy I did.
Ok, so now that, I’ve updated you on 2016, here’s what God put on my heart for 2017. The word for 2017… Forward. I feel God encouraging me to continue to press forward with what He already gave me to do. Which is… focus on my time with Him, my marriage and family.
How He gave it to me like this:
Proverbs 14:1 (amp)- ” The wise woman builds her house on a foundation of godly percepts and her household thrives, but the foolish one (who lacks spiritual insights) tears it down with her own hands (by ignoring godly principles).”
Matthew 7:13-14 (msg)- “Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easy-going formulas for a successful like that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life, to God, is vigorous and requires total attention!
Mark 6:31 (NASB)-
“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest awhile.”
I will explain more in detail in another post. I hope you guys had a safe holiday and a happy new year. I’m looking forward to what 2017 has to bring.
