Reflections on 2010

New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. I am sitting in my mom's living room with less than twelve hours left of 2010, and am doing just that.

 Here are a few resolutions I would like to make for the new year.
  • Spend more time in prayer
  • I will no longer waste my time relieving the past, instead I will focus on the future
  • I will give up chocolates totally. 100%. Completely. Honestly....
  • I will stop sending e-mails to my husband.
  • I resolve to work with neglected children -- my own.
  • I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard to estimate since I'm not a clock watcher.
  • I will read the manual... just as soon as I can find it.
  • I will think of a password other than "password."
  • I will not tell the same story at every get together.
  • I won't worry so much.
  • I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine - if that unwashed fellow sits next to me again, I'll tell him he stinks!
  • I will be more imaginative.
  • Spend more time working on the farm.
  • Get back on my diet!
In 2011

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good..

Remember.....Just going to church doesn't make you a christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.
