Continuing the Christmas Countdown.
This week is List Week.
In this stage of life, I get very good at making lists, not because of Christmas, but because of the pending birth of our baby in January.
Whether it is nesting or just a good excuse to get some extra projects done, I have been making lists of all the things I wish to accomplish the next two or three months. My Christmas plans look small in comparison.
Ed pulls me back to reality by reminding me that there is only one thing that is necessary to do before this baby is born - go to the store and buy a box of diapers.
While I love my lists - and the fulfillment I get from checking things off the list - I do want to hold my lists with hands open. God might have different plans for the next months. I don't want to become so focused on my lists that I ignore the people God has put in my life, or worse, treat those people like projects to be completed and checked off.
Read last year's post to be inspired on your lists - and gain insights from David on how to hold your lists.
