Today Is...

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, 
"plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

I LOVE this verse.  It's such a comfort to know that God is in control.  I have choices but He ultimately knows what's in store for my life, so when I'm floundering and wondering what to do, I can be comforted that it's already decided and that it will be for my good and God's glory.
Whew, that's a load of my mind.

I just finished month #1 of taking and posting a photo a day.  I feel like I've accomplished something. Several years ago a couple of friends and I decided to do a 365 photo-a-day challenge. 
 It sounded so overwhelming, and it was.  
Although I did it, I missed a few days (maybe 3) 
and even though there were no "photo police" to chastise me, I felt guilty.

At the start of this year I thought I'd try it for the month of Jan. 
Just one month. 
Now it's the first day of Feb and I think I'll try it for another month. 

One of the last assignments for January was "nature".  I'm not a big fan of outdoor winter photography, so I photographed my little house plant which I enjoy so much 
and which puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.


The assignment for Feb 1 is "Today is...".  
Well today is a dreary, cloudy, snowy & cold day but spring is on the way.
I'm staying home A.G.A.I.N because I don't want to deal with the roads
and nastiness, but I think I'll choose to be productive and appreciate
the blessings I have and not dwell on the restrictions imposed by
the weather.
