From My Front Porch- New Year's Version

   Happy New Year!
   Welcome to 2017!  I am not a big fan of New Year's resolutions.  Resolutions are meant to be broken....right?  I figure if I need to make some changes I should do it then and not wait for change.  However, I do understand that the new year is a great time to start some new habits or set some goals.  I have some ideas toying around in my head about some new goals but really I haven't addressed them yet.  I need to step back and really look at what is working and what isn't before I make some changes.  The new year is a good time to reflect.
   One idea that I do know that I am going to implement into my daily routine is a suggestion that was given to us at church Sunday morning.  I am going to start reading a chapter of Proverbs every day on the corresponding date.  Example: read Proverbs 12 on Jan 12, Feb 12, Mar 12, etc. Proverbs 25 on Jan 25, Feb 25, Mar 25, etc.  This isn't a new idea to me but one that I think has merit at this point in my life. Other ideas deal with our budget, healthy food and self improvement are rolling around in my brain but I am not sure what I want to do about those yet. 
   Now onto the photos from my front porch today.  Today was overcast and cold with temps I the lower to mid 30's throughout most of the day.  We experienced some freezing rain overnight into the early morning.  It was also foggy.  The rain melted a lot of the snow covering we had earlier.  That's okay though because we will get more, I am sure of that! 

      The tracks in the snow are from our golf cart.  Jeremiah and Ryder put some chains on the tires and it really goes in the snow. They need the golf cart to get wood in from the woods.  We have wood cut and ready for winter, Jerm and Ryder just like to cut wood and we have some trees that my dad had cut down earlier in the year that needed cut up.
   Well that's all for now.  Hopefully your New Year is a great one!


  1. That's a great idea to put chains on the golf cart! Those photos make it look so cold I almost shivered! Happy new year to you and yours! Stay warm up there!

  2. Very smart lads! And how great they help with the wood! I started my Bible devotions too. I am also a morning one by Joyce Myers. Yet, I love reading Proverbs!
