In typical fashion on the first day of the new year we are in our jommies cooking, eating, watching ballgames while reflecting on 2020 and talking about 2021. Reflecting over the last year makes me smile. As crazy as it was I learned a lot. I loved the extra time at home with my family. The extra time at home however, did not help me get the house more organized ( a 2020 goal). The extra time did not help my ironing pile either. But I am so truly thankful for this time. I’m thankful for my job and the flexibility to work from home.
I learned that I do not have the gift of homeschooling but I love listening to my daughter read out loud. I also learned that I need the rest and to schedule less on my calendar especially on the weekends. Rest is important and something I did not prioritize.
In a year when so many things were cancelled celebrating was not. My top nine 2020 are celebrations! Birthdays, Holidays, an anniversary and an engagement. So much to be thankful for and look forward to in the new year.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here. 2 Corinthians 5:17
One bag of dried black eyed peas soaked and cooked in the crockpot two ways. Half of the peas are for soup and the other for dip. Here are my recipes.
Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, praise his name;
proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
Happy 2021 Friends!
