New Year’s Resolutions

One of the biggest struggle for the girls is to leave the past behind, embrace the present and be hopeful about the future.

So we are finished this year praying for new eyes, new perspective, leaving the old clothes behind and dressing with the new garments as Paul would say.

Kids learn better when they DO and are involved in the process. So this afternoon, after lunch we did a nice and practical exercise with the girls from our home to represent this.

The decided to leave many things on 2021. Those things were written in little wood sticks we broke.  And we wrote what God has for us for 2022 (based on Colossians 3). Then they ‘randomly’ picked one. As you can imagine most if not all of them laughed at loud after seeing the one they got because it was ‘exactly’ what they needed, wanted or were praying for. Well that’s the Father they are getting to know. 

After that exercise they received a pair of new shoes. Representing that the Lord who makes all things new wants to guide their every step this year.
