New Year's Resolutions



I am not a big fan of New Years' Resolutions, but as I look forward to the new year, I have been thinking about who I am and what I need to become. So here is my Top 10 List of things I would like to do...and since I am posting them here for the world to see, I hope to look back at this next year and see just how far I have come.....
1) First of all I desire to really understand what it means to be a Child of God.
2) I desire to understand what it means to be a "true" woman, not what the world says, but what the Lord says about who I should be.
3) I desire to spend more time with "like-minded" friends.
4) I would like to have a more defined "family vision".
5) I plan to move Rob's office out to the sunroom. Work and family must be more separated!!
6) I want to learn how to preserve food by canning and storing. (Anyone out there want to help me with this one?)
7) I would like to be able to help others by being a better steward of what the Lord has blessed me with.
8) I want to learn how to sew....(since my motto has always been "if I can glue it, I can do it!" I really need a lot of help on this one!!)
9) I desire to be more purposeful in instilling Godly principles in my children's lives everyday.
10) I want to slow down. My children are growing up so fast...I don't want to miss a thing!!
Happy New Year to all of my friends and family. May the Lord bless you and keep you in 2010 and always!

"If I can glue it, I can do it."

Kelly, those are precious resolutions! And posting them for the world to see is a great accountability tool. I will be happy to help you with the canning and sewing all I can. You know, of course, that your "like minded" friends, the Stricklens, are pretty accomplished in those areas? And I know they love spending time with you.

God bless you as you strive to be the woman God has designed you to be -- I know He will do that good work in you!

Love,
