I’m making a few small changes to Saturday Salutes for the new year. I plan to add a little descriptor to the title each week. Hopefully that will make it easier to find a particular post if you want to reference it later.
Also, once a month or so, I’m going to share a list of the books I’ve been reading, along with a quick review of each one. Rather than writing a separate post dedicated to that, I’ll just add the list to the end of a Saturday post. I’m hoping that this will motivate me to read more in 2018; I definitely didn’t read as many books as I would have liked to last year.
If, like me, you’re still evaluating how you’d like to see change in your life during 2018, check out these two articles.

What a neat snow-family! An six inches! That’s incredible! How fun!
I liked the perspective of Heather’s post about keeping my hands open. I try to do that, but it’s hard because I think I know better than God — which sounds absolutely ridiculous when I type it out. But there it is.
Yes, I understand – in my mind I know that God knows best, but I too often still make plans like I know what is best, and even move forward without asking for His leading.
“Starting the Year with Open Hands” – YEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!
Whoa: “How to Set Goals Like a Normal Person” – meant for me. 100% me.
Glad y’all enjoyed the snow!!!
Yes, we did enjoy the snow! We’ve had a couple of other times I remember with just a dusting of snow, but this was very memorable!! Roads were still icy this morning, so the girls got an extra day off of school 🙂 Reality hits early tomorrow morning, though!!
