WOW!! 2008 was a turbulent year with many ups and too many downs. But through it all, I'm still here!
So with open arms I
And I can't wait to see what's in store for us all. Last night my family and I brought in the New Year hearing the Word during Watch night Services at our church. The fellowship was great, and the Word was right on time. We are to Prepare the Way...in our homes, schools, jobs, cities and churches.
My Hubby serves as a Deacon, he has been for the past ten years. Last night he publicly announced his call to Preach the Gospel as a Minister of God. He had discussed this with our Pastor, Raliegh, before he passed away earlier this year. I'm so excited for him. It's really a personal, and great responsibility. Please, those who pray and intercede, add us to your prayer petitions. His first sermon will be in December. At the end of service we had breakfast and it really hit the spot. I was full both physically and spiritually.
Today was a day of rest, reflection, and phone calls to family and friends to speak to them for the New Year. We barbecued ribs and brats and had potato salad, baked beans and cornbread. Ummm, Ummm, GOOD!!!
Even though I don't make resolutions, I do try to have goals set, it just makes thing less hectic in my head; certainly when you're an organizer.
So these are a few goals I thought about for the year 2009:
- Spend more time with family (i.e. travel, vacation, conversation)
- Read more, and turn the TV OFF!!!!
- Spend less money on scrapbook supplies...(AARRGGGG! that was a hard one to write down)!
- Happily dedicate myself more toward my responsibilities (i.e. home, church, community)
- Pray more
I think these are attainable goals for this year. I'm going to assert myself and get things completed. I've done well in the past, and this year I'm going to do even better. Proud of ME!!And, for 2009 I will and I pray you will too:
- Be wise in your finances, health and home
- Be a blessing to your co-workers and friends
- And take care of one another and our environment
To each and everyone of you, may your New Year be prosperous and blessed and remember to,Let Life Inspire YOU!!!
