On the first day of 2022, a Saturday morning, I took a walk at 10:00 am in shorts and a t-shirt, working up a bit of a sweat in the 73-degree weather. I tried to squeeze in some yard work but the expected rains drove me indoors. The next night, snow fell. I woke up yesterday morning to about three inches on the deck railing, though the roads were clear and the ground was patchy due to the previous day’s warmth.
Gotta love Tennessee. We have all the seasons, sometimes in the same week.
Anyway, this new year doesn’t quite feel like a new year to me… yet. The homeschooling journey I began in 2005 eventually led to a part-time teaching position at a private school, and so I still operate by school calendars. For me, the new year will begin in August, and with it a brand-new season of life.
That being said, January 2022 kicks off a semester of change for me. My baby is starting her final semester of high school. There is a possibility of a career change on the horizon for me. God has been up to so much, it’s almost too much to share.
Many of these changes will be reflected here. Keep checking back… You never know what you might find.
So I’m dusting off this underused space, and planning some changes. As I survey the cobwebbed corners, I find myself eager to get back.
Until then, please click the linked title to read the most recent offering for my church family: “Lifestyles of the Rested and Reliant.”
I hope to see you around soon!
