Ready to Fly in 2013 & A Blogging Tradition

“Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
― L.M. Montgomery

Oh, I have so much to write and share with what the Lord has been teaching me this last year.  Warning, if you ever ask the Lord with a sincere heart to to lead and guide you, He will!  That is exactly what the Lord did for me in 2012.  I had so many questions and really needed some more direction for my continued "  Journey  To Better Health".  The real challenge was to try to keep up with what the Lord was showing me. I was just reflecting a few days ago how this has been a long journey but oh so worth it.  To be able to say that I am 95 to 98% better is so good to be able to say.  Yes, I promise I will be sharing what the Lord showed me.  One thing at a time I promise and I will do my best to share it all with you.  God is so good all the time.  All the time God is so GOOD!

 I hope this coming year to start again and continue to share what I have and am still learning.  I also want to write in this book (via my blog) of my days and all the many facets of who the Lord is shaping me to be.  One day may be just thoughts, one may just be pictures and other days will be both.  Yes, truly I feel the Lord has brought me out of my cocoon and I am now ready to fly.

I have had a blogging tradition for a few years now to post a snippet of my year of blogging.  The rule is to post the first sentence only (and a picture from the post if you want) and see how it flows together.  It is always so fun to see how it turns out each year.


I have found that I LOVE challenges and found one I liked.


Last week on Wednesday after one of my chiropractor appointments hubby and I popped over to a sale on the camera I have been eyeing for about a year now.


Have you ever been called out of busy-ness?


Knitting Luke's Second Sock and figuring out tonight's dinner. 


Fresh of the knitting needles...a stripy Head Wrap 


This week end I was very blessed with the gift of some sponsoring me to go to our churches woman's retreat.

I am in a period right now where I really need to give myself a lot of grace.


This summer we have been experiencing episodes of power outages because of  weird summer storms here and there.


I know I have been absent for a long time and have been sparse all this last year but I have a reason for this absence. 

We went on a coastal trip a few weeks ago.




I read this this morning and it really counteracted what I was feeling HERE.



>> FRIDAY, JANUARY 21, 2011\

I was going through my craft patterns last night and found my notes on how to dye wool with food coloring or Kool Aide.

Once again it was so much fun to get a over all glance of my blogging for the year.  If you end up doing this let me know and I would love to come and read about your year at a glance.


  1. I can't wait to hear the wisdom you have learned.I miss you around blogdom.

  2. Thankfully, we never stop learning and He doesn't give up on us! Rejoicing with you, SSIC!

  3. That is an awesome way to sum up the year...I should have come and seen your idea before I posted mine. I have been thinking about you for weeks and so I picked up the book on T-Tapp..I remember you doing it and I think you had a lot of success. I look forward to what you have to share and blessings as you continue to grow in Him and in good health.
    Hugs...and so enjoy you...even if some of the time is just through Pinterest,
    Sister in Christ,
    Janette.........isn't heaven going to be fun with all us bloggers meeting for the first time?

    1. Regarding..."isn't heaven going to be fun with all us bloggers meeting for the first time?"

      Oh yes! I can't wait to have our reunion in our little corner. To finally get to sit, talk and laugh tons together. [o=

      Blessings <3

  4. I know that Our Lord had you away so that you can concentrate only on Him Mary, and nothing else. See how far you have come my sweet friend? love you,

  5. I had forgotten that this was the way you wrap up your year. I loved the idea when I read it last year. These days, I forget more than I remember!! I guess that is something else that makes a recap post fun for me.

    Like you, I have been cocooning, and I think (hope) that I'm ready to fly again. I will look forward to what God has taught you through yours.

  6. What a great wrap up. Glad you've had such a blessed year in the Lord. :)

  7. This was a fun post to read. I liked how you wrapped-up your year of blogging with one sentence from your blog post and a photograph.

    I'm looking forward to hearing/seeing all the wonderful things the Lord showed to you during your 2012 journey.

    Have a blessed New Year! :)

  8. I hope you have a Happy New Year!!! :) Sounds like you had a busy year last year!

    1. Oh Lynn it is sooooo nice to see you! Long time no see. (((HUGS))) Happy New year my SSiC.


  9. Mary,

    It's so good to have you back! I've missed your cheery, inspiring posts and your gorgeous photos. I trust the Lord will give you a wonderful year, filled with new goodness and fresh vision.


  10. I'm looking forward to what you will share with us. I love how knitting is somehow in almost every month of your posts. You are a very talented knitter!



Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
