New Years Resolutions

I made several New Year resolutions for 2010. 
1.       Start a blog as a creative outlet and to help entrepreneurs spread their clientele.  I wanted to promote handmade items and entrepreneurs. I am one myself and know how much time and love goes into it. I think it is an amazing thing to use the talents that God made and I want to help in any way I can!
2.       Lose 15 pounds.  I think that is totally a lame new year’s resolution. So I don’t really like to think that it is a New Year resolution.  I just want to be healthier for my boysJ. Lost 40 lbs. after Rivers was born and am almost to my goal J would love to get fit again.
3.       Have my bible study every day.  This is my number 1 goal! My Jesus is everything I am and I want to make that special time to spend with him every day.  I have had a hard time waking up early, and am now making it a priority!
4.      Be more patient. Totally self-explanatory…
Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience.”
Colossians 1:10-12
5.       Love and Respect me Husband as Christ calls me to. This is something I struggle with and I need to work on.
“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
Ephesians 5:32-33

I think New Year resolutions are a great way of getting out of a rut in your life. BUT I think it takes a lot of determination to follow through which is why we fail most of the time.  I am determined to improve these things! I want to become more like Jesus. If I just do that, I will be happy.
