I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall and that November is beautiful for you. For me, it's time to start listening to Christmas music. December will go by so quickly, that Christmastime needs to start as soon as possible in my book.

Lately I've been thinking about the new year since it will be here before we know it. There are new goals to be set and lessons to be learned from 2012. Have you ever felt like you have made some choices you will never be able to take back? Something that was said, a decision made, a look given. There's nothing like that feeling that is a mistake which weighs on you. 1 Corinthians 14:33 keeps popping up lately, reminding me that God is not the author of confusion, but of peace. If what you are experiencing doesn't consist of peace, it's a good time to start evaluating how to fix that with the new year on it's way. There's always a chance for amazing.

I'm trying to put it all back together | I've got a story and I'm trying to tell it right | I got the kerosene and a desire | I'm trying to start a flame in the heart of the night
