Hopefully you know how much I adore my friend, tracyfixen.com. Her name is Tracy, obviously, but in our home, her site name translates to her real life name, and we call her tracyfixen.com. Just roll with it.
Anyway, she posted this fun little ditty, and I thought I would follow suit. For one, it will get me thinking about how my life aligns with my one resolution for the year. What about my life can I use to live out Mark 12:30? For two, it will get me typing. And I do love to type. I remember in the myspace days how these things were always being posted and answered by everyone. It's been quite a while since I've posted total random, and mostly meaningless answers to questions of the same stature, so why not?
I do quickly want to mention, however, if you haven't heard of the #documentyourdays project on Instagram, go give it a looksie. No prompts, just a call to document your days by snapping a photo. Easy-peasy, and gets you to look at your life through the lens of wanting to savor every moment. Check it out, participate, and get to documenting.
