No new year resolutions for me...

I have decided this year not to make any resolutions for the new year.  Why?  Because I feel that it's silly to say one is going to do something and then quit after an X amount of time.  Seriously...think about it.  How many times have you said you were going to do something, such as quit smoking, only to "fall off the wagon" within a month or so.  

This year I'm going to set goals for myself, and hopefully by the year's end I will be happy with what I've accomplished.  I only have 3 main goals I want to work on in 2015.

1.  Pray more.  I firmly believe in prayer, but haven't done as much of it as I should.  I am trying to get into the habit of starting my day off with a prayer thanking the Lord for allowing me to wake up to enjoy another day He has created.  I also want to try to pray again before I go to sleep thanking Him for the blessings I've had that day, as well as for forgiveness for any mistakes I have made.

2.  Read my Bible more.  Though I've never read the Bible straight through, I have read various books of the Bible and have underlined my favorite scriptures.  I want to read more and look for more scriptures that "talk" to my soul and will help me lead a more Christ-like life.

3.  Continue on my weight loss journey.  Though I have an ultimate goal I'm working toward, I won't be disappointed if I don't achieve it in 2015; as long as I loose as much as I can to get there I will be happy.  I'll get to my ultimate goal one of these days.

Maybe I can get into more crafts this year...I've got a couple of ideas in mind.  Will have to see how things play out.  :-) 

I hope 2015 will be a good year for you.  May the Lord bless you and keep you.
