One word to capture the direction of a new year...

My heart leads me on many journeys, but launching requires abandon.

The putting off of old things: stale, deadly thought patterns.

Paul urged the church to put to death the decay so they could fully be alive in Christ.

Lust, evil, greed may not be my present enemies, but defeat seems to reign all too frequently.

"Not good enough...can't possibly do that...

Dear Santa,
All I want for Christmas this year is my family!
I want to cradle my granddaughter, read to her from my holiday stack, look into the eyes of my adult children and see Christmases past.
Distance is my enemy. Miles empty my soul.
