Today is the first day of a brand, spankin' new year. I don't know what it is, but I just love the feeling of a new year. It's like finishing up the chapter of a really good book and wanting to go to the next one to see what will happen. That's how I feel today. What will chapter 2013 look like? What amazing miracles will we see? What challenges will we face? How will I be a better person in 2013?
I know most people sat down this morning or last week sometime and wrote out a whole long list of resolutions or goals. I haven't yet. I usually do. A few years back I changed them from resolutions to goals. While pondering those terms this past week I realized I had given myself an out. You know if it's a goal and you don't get there you don't feel as bad, but when I would drop a resolution I always felt so guilty. Resolution means you are going to be resolute, steadfast, unchanging in your decision and thats what I want to be this year. Resolute. I won't bore you all with a big list of my resolutions, mainly because I don't have a long list. There are only a couple of things I have set my mind to do this year. And yes, one of those things is to blog more.
But my main desire is to be resolute in whatever it is I have set my mind to accomplish. God has given me another year. Another year to be a help meet to my Hubs, to mother my babies (who aren't really so little), to reach souls that are hungry, to be a good First Lady and to just all around be a more Godly person.
So here is my question. . . what are you going to do with this brand, spankin' new year?
