Happy New Year!!

 

It’s time to say goodbye to 2010. It’s gone fast and what a year for us!  A lot has changed.  My husband and I completed our planning for 2011 the other night.  We will probably finalize everything this weekend and get started on our new plans.  I’m excited.

I love the New Year.  A fresh start.  A clean slate.  New beginnings.

Just like Jesus has given all of us by dying on the cross.  A new beginning. We can start fresh and leave our old lives behind to start a  new life.  All you have to do is except that Jesus died for you commit to living the new life!

Saying Goodbye to 2009 and Welcoming 2010

I can’t believe it is the last day of 2009.  This year has gone by so fast.  I say that every year.  They keep getting faster and faster and I know that is because I am either getting older or having more fun.  One of the two, or both. 

I want to take time today to give you two lists.  I want to highlight the top 10 blessings I am thankful for in 2009 and I want to give you my top 10 goals for 2010.  I think that is a good way to end a good year and begin an even better one.

Top 10 Blessings of 2009:

  1. My personal relationship with God.
  2. My marriage and how much we have grown together this year.
  3. Good health.
  4. The great lessons from God on money, relationships and choices.
  5. Bible studies and the friends we have made this year.
  6. Our kids and how they have grown inside and out.
  7. The time I’ve been able to spend with the kids this year, during the summer and after school.
  8. Great neighbors.
  9. The schools our kids attend.
  10. Our church and Mobile Loaves and Fishes  (I cheated and put two for #10, but this is my list so it’s ok).

My Top 10 Goals for 2010: 

  1. Get closer to God through daily prayer and Bible reading.
  2. Continue to grow in my marriage with open communication and time together.
  3. Exercise as much as possible. (not just when I feel like it)
  4. Eat well and drink a lot more water.
  5. Work with God on the issues I need to work on. (He and I know what they are)
