A Few of My Favorite January Things

January’s not my favorite month. Not by a long shot. It’s about #12 of 12. But that’s just an approximation, of course. Cold. Gray. Slush. Slick. Sickness. Post-Christmas letdown. Generally, not a lot to look forward to (unless, of course, you have a January birthday! That’s something to celebrate! A bright spot in an otherwise dull month.)

Oh, of course, there is much to be thankful for. Though the world is in chaos, and many of our lives are in chaos, even in the junk, there is much to celebrate. Much significant “stuff” to reflect on. There are the people in my life. The ways I love and am loved. The provisions I’m given day in and day out. The surprises that come. And the deep-down joy and security I have only because of Jesus.

But then, there’s also the little things. And I think nothing can brighten a coooooolllllldΒ January day like rounding up a few of my favorites from the month.Β  You might find yourself a new favorite!Β You should definitely hum “My Favorite Things” as you read along …

  2. Not a clue what Canva is–or some of the others of your favorites, really. Haven’t seen that show–nice to know something out there is well-written. But the idea of favorite things is a keeper. It’s so easy to crab. Thinking of what brings a grin is spot on awesome. Well said, one of my favorite folks!

  3. Not a clue what Canva is. Haven’t seen that show–but it’s fun to know something out there is well-written. I lose all kinds of traction with tech. But I love the idea of favorite things!
