MONDAY MUSINGS: A Fresh Start…

January 16, 2012 at 6:40 AM 5 comments

Don’t you just love starting fresh?

Erasing the board. Clearing your head. Starting over.

That’s what a new year can feel like. A chance to begin again. To do things differently. To finally accomplish the things you’ve been meaning to do, but never quite get to.

Halfway through the month of January, my 2012 is officially beginning. So if you haven’t quite gotten your new year going yet, you’re not alone! 

After some really big transitions the last half of 2011 (moving across the country from L.A. to Nashville, and facing down some pretty daunting health issues), I’m finally able to pause, take a deep breath, and ask myself, “What next?”

To be honest, it’ll probably take me all of 2012 (and then some) to fully answer that question. Yet there are already a couple things in my life that seem to have the “NOW” button next to them highlighted. How about you? Are there some basic growing steps forward that the Lord seems to be nudging you toward in 2012?

For me, one of those things is blogging more regularly. It’s something I love to do, feel called to do, and miss when I don’t do it. Yet the rush of everyday life so often gets in the way. Sound familiar? Anyway, that’s how it often is for me. One thing I sense the Lord’s firm-but-gentle elbow in my back about this year is making blogging a definite priority, rather than letting it become “the tail” of the dog.

So today I’m officially launching three blog columns that I’ll be writing in 2012: 

MONDAY MUSINGS (weekly)

FRIDAY REFLECTIONS (weekly)

TRAINING STEP TUESDAY (monthly)

It’s a small start…but a BIG one if I actually do it! For those of you who are game, I’d be very happy for you to join  me on this 2012 blogging journey…and even happier if you join me in the grand adventure of seeking God’s “growing edge” for our lives day by day!

Blesssings, Kim

    Thank you for your thoughtful present of having written this article. The message seems to be given to me specifically. Our son also had a lot to learn from this – though he was the individual that found your site first. Most of us can’t imagine a more superb present than a gift to encourage that you do more.

    I enjoy you because of every one of your effort on this web site. Betty really loves engaging in investigations and it’s easy to understand why. A number of us notice all concerning the lively tactic you produce helpful items on this website and even inspire participation from visitors on this content and our daughter is without a doubt studying so much. Have fun with the remaining portion of the new year. You have been conducting a pretty cool job.
