Now let’s bring on 2015. I’ve gotten my new calendars ready to hang.
I have a desk calendar that has 3 years in one book. My yearbook representative keeps me in stock for those. I will be disappointed when he retires and no longer offers that perk. I like looking back at what was going on the previous year when making new plans. Told you I’m calendar obsessive.
The second calendar hangs on the wall in the office, above my computer. I can sit and stare at it when I’m at a loss for what to write or do next.
I’ve had a Georgia O’Keeffe calendar in that spot each year for over 10 years, but was unable to find one this year so will use the one sent to me by Child Evangelism Fellowship, the parent organization for Good News Clubs. Each month will show a child’s face from somewhere in the world and will be a good reminder to me to pray for children everywhere, not only those with whom I work.
The third calendar hangs by the back door, in the kitchen. I ponder it as I’m cooking, or have visitors who want to make plans, or when I call for my hair appointment. This is the fourth year I’ve purchased the calendar from Whole Foods. It is a fund raiser for their international work with micro funding of small entrepreneurs. Each month highlights a small business. Again, makes me think beyond my own neighborhood.
I’m definitely looking forward to 2015. Wishing all of my dear Readers a very good year, wherever you may be in the world.
