When I look at the year 2013 I look at it as a blank slate. Other than a trip to Congo at the end of this month, I have no idea what will happen. Frankly, I don't really have any plans either. My nutrition course is coming to end and I'm prayerfully considering some more studies. Yet, I'm not worried. 

"Strength and dignity are her clothing,
    and she laughs at the time to come."

Proverbs 31:25

Whatever I decide, I have parents who are going to counsel and pray with me through the decisions. Even though I don't have a "plan" with set dates, I'm not planning to be lazy and do nothing. 

Some verses I keep coming back to are in Proverbs 31

"She considers a field and buys it;
    with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard." 

"She makes linen garments and sells them;
    she delivers sashes to the merchant."

This woman is making money, not so she can be independent but so she can help her family. Currently, I'm trying to figure out how this applies to my life. 

But there are some smaller things that I know will be a part of it. 

For the last couple of years I have told my self I will run a half marathon, so far I've only made it to a 10k, we'll see what this year brings. 

If you can't tell by my blog yet, I take a lot of pictures and I take great delight in doing so. Recently, I've been trying to convey more emotion through my pictures. Pictures that tell a story and capture a moment in time. Time travel. They take you to the moment so you can hear the laughter, feel the warm sunshine, and taste the delicious food. Pictures that have depth. Instead of just a face, it's a face with a background and a story.

I will still help out with our homeschool co-op. I help watch some of the cutest four year olds ever.

Read more
 I love books but I never seem to get around to reading very often. I said last year that I would read more frequently, and I didn't... I'll try again this year. So far I've read What Every Body Is Saying by Joe Navarro. It's all about what people say through their body language. I used some principles just yesterday in a chess game against my sister, her body language told me that she was about to make a move she was excited about before she told me about it and consequently I stopped her. Editor's note: This was very cruel of Anna to use such trickery, for the record, I beat her anyway.

What will come this year? I have no idea. : )

I suspect that your chess playing was practice for the next time you babysit the Bebb kids. :)
