Thoughts for the new year

A couple things I want to dwell on this year...
Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.  

A few things I'd like to implement this year...
Post more regularly on this blog and the Trader Joe's blog - more than how I finished this past year.  Yikes...
Find peace and thankfulness in the midst of a life that currently feels much more busy than we'd ever like it to be (although, we feel peace that this where we are to be and what we are to be doing).  
Read a book a month...not sure of the list of books is yet.  Need to get on that. 

And, a few more thoughts on the new year to come...

p.s. there are so many great pictures from our Christmas time with my family.  If I can, I'll just direct you to my brother's blog (see posts below that one) and my mom's.  They've documented well :). 

my favorite picture of Evee and I is from when we all went bowling and took turns helping her...thanks to my brother for quickly snapping this shot.


  1. A new post!! We've been waiting patiently. :)

    So fun to be together and let me know if you need any novel suggestions. :)

  2. I'm with you girl! Can't wait to hear what your "book-of-the-month" list includes. I might just "borrow" a few titles from you for mine. ;-)

    And Josh, I'd take any suggestions from you too! Maybe we should start our own little online book club guys!! :-)

  3. Love your post Jamie. Haven't been reading much lately, but hope to in the future. Love the verses. I need them right now :). See you soon!
