Every year at this time I look forward to going to my local store and buying a new calendar for 75% off! I just love the fact that if I wait a few days I can get the calendar that I really love for a much cheaper price. Around the first of December I go and peruse the calendar section to see which one I would love to bring home with me. Then I wait patiently for the big end of the year sale to roll around and I go and purchase it. It is always such a good feeling to get such a good deal!
I think you can tell a lot about a person by the calendar they purchase. They have calendars devoted to hobbies, nature, pets, religion, humor, etc. . . You name it, they probably make it! My philosophy is that you might as well get a calendar that you love and that shows your personality because after all you are going to be looking at it for the next 365 days!
Every year I try and go with an open mind and tell myself I am going to give "other calendars" a chance. I think, "maybe I'll buy a cooking calendar," or "maybe I'll buy a cat calendar," etc. . . Invariably, I end up with the SAME calendar each year! My eye is always immediately drawn to this particular one and I can't wait to tear the paper off so I can explore each wonderful month. I love the wonderful drawings, the beautiful quotes and other musings. This calendar really speaks to my heart and what I love. What calendar am I talking about? Susan Branch's Heart of the Home!
There is something so wonderful and exciting about getting a new calendar. All those days and months just waiting to be filled. New possibilities. New hope. New beginnings! I hope and pray that I will be able to fill my calendar so that each new day will be pleasing to God.
