This year I will...

How unique are you? This is the time of year when almost everyone commits to similar resolutions, to either loose weight, save more, organize something, give up a bad habit, etc....

Fill in the blank: This year I will_____________________

Here's mine - This year I will commit to reading the entire bible. A study guide says that if you read 4 chapters a day you will be finished in one year! I just love the parts in Genesis that say, GOD said...
God said it and so it is!

Happy New Year and here's to a happy life!

Happy New Year! You can do it. In fact, you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. That's a good goal to set for yourself.

This year I will expect the unexpected from God. And I realize 2009 is the year of expectancy.

Happy New Year!! Have a great weekend!!

Hello free spirit. Happy New Year to you and yours. Nice Post. In my case, I stopped making New Year's resolutions a long time ago. Mainly because for one reason or another I couldn't keep them. Then I ended up feeling bad about it. Now I feel differently and want to learn more of his ways on the regular. So I will keep on chugging along and prayerfully reach your present goal one day too - PEACE

That's such a worthy goal. You can do it dear one. Guess what? Your Father is pleased that you want to read His love letters.

I actually do set goals - I tend to excel in some and break others right after making them.

God bless!!!
