For me, December has always been a month of great reflection–I don’t think I’m alone in that regard either. I assume that the year coming to a close, as well as the cold weather that puts people into nesting mode just like the African Penguins, has an awful lot of people thinking about their accomplishments over the past 11 months as well as planning for the next year.
I am definitely a planner, but I’m starting to wonder if I shouldn’t just throw all my plans out of the window. I mean, it feels as if God is just sitting there waiting for me to make plans so he can have a good, deep belly laugh, for my plans always go to naught!
That’s not to say that I will stop wanting certain situations to work out with my best interests in mind, but the way I plan every little thing down to the last detail is starting to feel like I just expend too much energy on things that will never manifest.
This isn’t a blog to complain about poor, little me because I know things could always be worse.
In fact, this particular blog has me feeling like counting my blessings because even though nothing has gone the way I planned it, I can’t shake this feeling that something amazing is about to happen; something that’s going to blow my plans to kingdom come (sp?) and I’ll never want to look back again. I think God has made plans and he’s just waiting for me to surrender my will to him, so he can blow my mind and you know what? I’m ready to do just that–surrender and let him do what only he can!
Here’s to a wonderful December that we will all remember with a smile on our face and a twinkle in our eye!
