Resolutions!! I’ll bet a few of you have made them. I try not to. I don’t want to disappoint myself and feel guilty if I break them. But there are a few goals I have this coming year.
I want to lose weight, but only 10-15 pounds. That’s not easy, but it’s not as hard as, say, 50 pounds. I’ll probably drop all 10 by the end of February. If I still want to lose another 5 then I’ll push for that when the time comes. Truthfully, though, I’d be happy with losing just ten. The diet starts tomorrow. I’ll also resume my exercise routine. So I’ll be sore this week and next for sure.
I want to be closer to God. I have started a “read the Bible in 1 year” challenge through my church’s women’s ministry. I’m looking forward to that. I have experienced a lot of growth in my faith in 2007, especially in my prayer life. I look forward to whatever 2008 brings in my relationship with Christ.
I want to be a better wife and a better mom. I want to be more patient and less sarcastic. I want to be more fun & spontaneous and less routine & scheduled.
I want to save money. I want to pay cash for things like vacations and our daughter’s upcoming education. We are going to Ohio for sure once this year — maybe twice. Rich is going to his friend’s wedding in Utah. I don’t want to charge any part of those trips. Our daughter starts school in the fall and we will be sending her to a private Christian school. It’s not cheap and we want to provide her with the best education that we can.
I want to nourish my friendships. I have made a lot of new friends over the past 2 years. I want to get to know them better this year. I want to remain close to my established friends. I want to keep in touch more with my friends who don’t live so near.
I wish you all mounds of blessings in 2008. May this be the year of Jesus Christ’s return!! God bless you!!
