Happy New Year!

So I guess this is my first post of the year. :)

It has started out well. I finished my first project of the year, my Mince Pie Mayhem socks (Socktopus KAL on Ravelry). I knit them in Cascade Heritage Paints in the Indian Summer colorway. This pair took a while, it seemed, due to all of the cables, but I'm glad I knit them anyways.

I am now knitting Fiori di Zucca, also from the Socktopus book and for the same KAL.

So far I have knit each pair since the beginning of the KAL, and plan to continue knitting each pair in the book.

I have not done specific research into my word (PEACE), yet; but I am daily aware of my need and search for it constantly. I am reading the book "In Pursuit of Peace: 21 Ways to Conquer Fear, Anxiety and Discontentment" by Joyce Meyers. I am also using the daily devotional "The One Year Book of Proverbs." I can definitely feel a change since I've committed to studying the Bible more again. I am starting to hunger for more of Jesus again, as I used to. I am thankful for this.

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

I am thankful and blessed to know that though I will have troubles and trials to face in this life, God is with me always and He is in control. There is nothing that can come between me and the love of my Lord, and nothing can stand against Him (or me, when I stand in Him)!
