I don't want to be so distracted anymore. So this year, 2013, my word for the year is
"Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise, therefore, and build the sanctuary of the LORD God..." 1 Chronicles 22:19a
I want to set my heart, my soul, my mind, my footsteps, the work of my hands on seeking the Lord, glorifying His name and nothing else. This year, I want to have ultimate purpose in all that I do. For too long I have allowed myself to get distracted and because like the hymn I am "prone to wander". The problem is the Bible calls the way I've been living foolish (read Proverbs).
Who wants to be called a fool? Not me. So I'm done with foolishness.
Ok, now I'm going to get crafty on you again, haha!
To help me get focused for 2013 I made one of these pictures for each member of my family:
Now before you start thinking I'm really artistic, let me tell you the fun way I was able to do these and get my kids involved having fun with it too.
I printed out color-by-numbers for each letter from this site:
Then, I taped a piece of cardstock over the printed out color-by-number on the window (I don't have a lighted desk, so the window was the only was to see it through the cardstock clearly). My kids thought this was cool, so I let them do some on regular paper - imagine what our neighbors thought as they walked by and at least four of us were sitting in the front picture window with paper taped to it coloring, haha).
I chose my own colors for each one and voila! I know you are all impressed ; )
Anyway, here's to getting focused this year on what really matters!
