The new year is here! Here are some things I want to do this year:
Read my Bible completely, in one year’s time. (I actually started this one on December 15th. Trying to be the early bird, I guess.) I want to grow closer to God this year, more than ever before and ONE of the ways I want to do that is by reading, studying and learning the Word of God.
Read at least a book a month. -This one is a continuation from 2012. I made the same resolution and….COMPLETED it! Actually, I read well over 12 books. But it is a goal I like to always have for myself.
Have a special day each month where I specifically give to others. Whether it be going to the nursing home with my little boy, to visit or pass out treats; or, dropping off lunch to someone while they’re at work. Something thoughtful and something that is giving (of myself and my time). I really want this to be more often than once a month but I also want to set realistic goals for myself. I think this is such an important one for me to be an example to my little boy.
Of course, I have general goals as well but nothing specific. Just things like: be the best wife I can be. Forgive others when I’m wronged. Be a true friend. Listen more. Be more positive. Things like that…things that are always ongoing. Because as the song goes “He’s still working on me, to make me what I outta be”. I am a piece of clay, still yet to be seen what shape I will end up as. But, I hope it’s something useful, something of value to Him. Happy new year everyone!
