New Year thoughts…

True confessions….I’m not sure if I’m going to be a top notch blogger.

Somehow “holiday life” took over and, like the laundry, the blogging just didn’t get done. How do busy people keep blogging? It’s a mystery to me.

But I must say, that while I sit here at the computer, I’m looking at a pile of clothes next to the ironing board. I have chosen blogging over spray starch. So maybe with the new year, I’ll be better at this than I am at ironing…we shall see. 

What does this new year hold for you? 

For our family…Jill and Ryan are moving to Charlotte, North Carolina in January, and that means that all three of our children will be in the Carolinas and within an hour or so of each other. Far from us in Texas, but near to each other…I’ll take that.

For my work… the most exciting thing that I’m working on this month is a program for parents of adopted children. Helping parents explain conception and birth to their children who are adopted is a bit more complicated than explaining these things to our biological children, but I’m finding that these are great stories of grace, redemption, and new life. Tapestry Ministry at Irving Bible Church has an amazing program for parents who are considering adoption, who have already adopted, and for foster parents. If you are interested in seeing what they do, check out this link: www.tapestryministry.org

For Dave and me…we have made a solemn promise to watch less T.V.

The Clemson-Duke game is on right now…

So much for our resolve…GO TIGERS!

    Happy New Year, Mary Flo! Glad to hear that Jill is moving back to the East Coast – must make visiting kids much easier. 🙂 I’m so excited about your program at IBC for parents of adoptive children. I think it’s really going to make a huge impact.

    Happy New Year Mary Flo! If I had a choice between blogging or ironing, blogging would win every time! I’m really excited about your program at Irving Bible Church for families with adoptive children. It will be interesting to see how you weave in the special aspects of adoption. Have a wonderful 2010!!!
