For the New Year: My Heart for 2015

These middle of the night baby feedings are becoming times for me to scratch out ideas and thoughts from a sleepy brain. I'm pretty fuzzy then but the other night I start really thinking about what I wanted to pursue and jotted down a few ideas. So for a short glimpse of my heart for 2015-  I desire...

-To have a heart for my Savior. A heart that rises up in the morning and focuses on God and who he is and what He wants for me and from me.
-To embrace my femininity with high heels and kindness if we are going out and bare feet and a smile if we are staying in. 
-To love my husband and be on his side. To grasp his vision for family and life and turn it into something beautiful and breathtaking. 
-To see my children and reach them where they are and not where I want them to be.
-To pursue a vibrant version of me- one immersed in the gifts and callings of this season of life and the work it entails. 
-To love my Savior out of response for all He has done for me and let that love pour out into everything I do. 
-To make time for people because I am focused on others and not myself; to step out of my comfort zone and act on what they need.  
-To pursue my work with excellence and passion; learning new skills and using them to benefit others. 
-To be different in appearance, in heart, in word, in action from a woman who does not know Christ. 
The fact that I'm a woman doesn't make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I'm a Christian does make me a different kind of woman.  Elisabeth Elliot
