This Week’s Verse: Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

All of God’s people are ordinary people who have been made extraordinary by the purpose God has given them ~ Oswald Chambers

Well, it’s that week in between the two big holidays when some of us have to work and others are off, so it feels like a bit of limbo. Still, I hope everyone had a great holiday. I know I had some mixed reactions and even wrote a letter to myself yesterday so that I wouldn’t repeat the same feelings next Christmas: feelings of too much emphasis on gifts and not enough emphasis on the meaning of the season.

Last night my family and I reflected on 2016 and set our goals for 2017. It brought me back to where I wanted to be and really shed some light on my family members, their hearts and their minds. It was such a valuable time and I encourage everyone to do something of the same.
