If 2020 taught me anything, it's that we need to hold tightly to the lessons of James 4:13-15:
"Now listen, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, 'If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.'"
For most of my adult years, I've set goals, picked words, and dreamed big dreams. When 2020 hit, I was reminded that we're not guaranteed tomorrow, and realized that it might be prudent to spend some time enjoying the smaller accomplishments in 2021 that we would have overlooked prior to this crazy year. For example...reading through the books that are currently on my nightstand.
- Boundaries with Teens

- Don't assume because it's on my nightstand, I'm recommending it.
