Very soon the tree will come down and all the decorations will be packed away. I always feel a bit of mixed emotions this time of year.
A part of me feels a bit nostalgic as I pack the ornaments away for another year. However, mostly I'm filled with excitement for what the new year will bring.
Part of teaching is reflecting on what's been done and planning for the future. As I think about 2015, my head is filled with plans to be made and projects to be done. I am content to move on to a new year full of empty pages ready to be written.
I hope that your 2014 was filled with blessings and that your 2015 has more blessing to come! Whether your going out for celebrations or staying home by a nice warm fire, be safe and may God bless!
