I love to look at the coming year and think about all that we have planned. However, these are just our plans. The Lord may have something entirely different for our months ahead. The Bible tells us that men plan but God is in control. Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, But the counsel of the Lord, it will stand.
Lord willing we will...

March is going to be a really busy month so I love that we get a little break in April. I will be using April to prepare for Clare's birthday party and Colin's graduation party in May. From September until the end of the year we are VERY busy. Those months are usually our busiest months and time passes quickly. I love that we have a little break in August before we head back to school and start the crazy busy months.
