I LOVE New Year’s resolutions! They make me feel like all of my mistakes over the past year are finally done. Now, there’s no more worries about what I shoulda/coulda done; its a fresh new year with endless possibilities! This year, instead of making a list of resolutions I’ve decided to pick a word. I’ll choose one word; a word that embodies who I want to be and strive to personify that word.
After much deliberation-within my own head, of course-I finally chose my word: Faithful.
1. Faithful to God–I have this bad habit of thinking that I know best. I tend to try to juggle twenty-seven situations while riding a uni-cycle then complain to God when I fall on my tooshy. This year I’m going to do my best to prioritize my life. I’m going to start each morning praying to Him and reading His Word instead of doing my own thing then complaining about never having time for Him or wondering why my life is crazy.
2. Faithful to My Family–Despite the sibling bickering, or annoyances that crawl up your spine, one’s family is essential and irreplaceable. This year I am going to make a point to do my best to let them know how much I love them–not just by telling them as I hang up the phone, but by spending time with them and doing things for them.
3. Faithful to Me–Barely a day passes when I don’t have an idea of something I’d like to do-whether its a project around the house or learning something new-and yet I rarely take the time to do any of these things. This year I’m going to pick one thing a month to do for me, even if its something as simple as hanging some shelves or knitting a scarf.
Just do me a favor, when I blog about any projects I’m doing or tools I’m using… DO NOT CALL CHUCK! He’s already hid most of his tools from me and freaks out if I dare ask something as simple as “Hey honey, where’s your nail-spitter-outter-thingy?”
So, here’s to another year of laughter and prayer and 2% moments. May God richly bless you and yours.
