As I sit here at my kitchen island looking out the window watching it snow (yes it's snowing in Texas), I think about what lies ahead this year. In a world full of uncertainties, there are so many things that could happen this year.

Don't we all know that!

But, instead of thinking about all the things that may not happen, all of the negative "what ifs" I'm going to focus on the possibilities. I'm going to BELIEVE that good things could happen this year.

I'm choosing to BELIEVE that God has good things in store for us this year. Whether they are those things on my list or not, I'm going to trust His plan for my life.

This year, I'm going to BELIEVE that...anything is possible!

I thought it was a really neat mind exercise to choose a word for 2011. Mine came out to be "onward"... more than anything, that is how we want to live this year- onward, no matter if we're more than a family of two in december or not! Thanks for posting!

YOur post made me think of Ephesians 3:20...

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think!!

Thanks for stopping by today. Can't wait to see what this year brings for you!!

Hope is a good think to have. When I started the adoption process for my son I got a fortune cookie fortune that said "Your fondest dream will come true within the year" and I carried that slip of paper around with me for the 10 months it took to bring him home. Now it is in a frame on my wall. All that to say, it is good to believe. (Oh, and I wandered over from Stirrup Queens)
