New Years Resolution

Its still shocking that Christmas is over. Seriously, this year it came and went by with just a blink of an eye. AND now were gearing up for 2013? Time really seems to fly the older I get...

I'm not one to usually make New Year Resolutions, but I do love hearing what others plan. The one's I've heard most often already are to lose weight, drink less Cokes, take more trips, volunteering, or the like. I applaud those and wish everyone luck in their resolutions!

My goal this year is simply to enjoy life. Whatever is thrown at me, I know the Lord is in control and I trust his plans. I have much to be thankful for - my husband, parents, siblings, friends, job, home, health, blog, etc. I know my 2013 resolution isn't spectacular, but I am reminded daily that life is a gift, on the good days and on the bad ones.

I'm ready for 2013 and all that it has to bring! What are your New Year Resolutions?


  1. Being thankful - sounds like a GREAT resolution! I will join you on that one. :)
    Love you sister!!

  2. I love what you said about enjoying each moment... I need to do that more!
    Actually, I'm not a big one for resolutions, but this year I'm partnering with Holley Gerth and a team of girls who are chasing God-sized dreams - so while it's not a resolution, there are some goals that I'm striving for to see those dreams come to pass!

  3. {Melinda} Yes, trusting that God is in control and will lead my steps ... I am always trying to do that better. Fear can creep in and I feel like Peter who was walking on the water to Jesus and then began to sink when he focused on the waves!
