It came and it went. And I totally missed wishing everyone a very wonderful New Year yesterday. I was totally out of commission yesterday with a whopping headache. I think all the late nights, out of routine sleeping in, constant consumption of unhealthy food choices and not getting outside a whole lot just totally caught up with me.
Does this sound like a lead up to a big resolution post for 2008? Well, it won't be. I don't make them. I gave it a great effort last year because it seemed the thing to do because I now had a blog and it would make me accountable to, like, the whole world, but that didn't change a thing when it came to working toward and accomplishing those goals I listed. As usual I started off with a bang, but totally fizzled out quickly. I can't even remember what any one of the goals I listed was.
I do know a couple things, I want to draw closer to the Lord this year. I do want to spend more personal time with Him. And I want my home to be more of a peaceful place all around. So I will be taking steps toward both of those things this year. The thing that I don't know yet is what I will do to work towards the both of them. I am sure I will be making plans, but I'm also sure those plans will be tweaked and changed as it goes along. As my friend, Laura, wrote so eloquently yesterday, one small thing at a time adds up to big results. I have a feeling, though, that the two definitely go hand in hand.
One of those small steps will be making better use of devotionals featured at Faith Lifts and at CWO Internet Cafe. Both of these sites have wonderful daily posts that help us draw closer to the Lord and help us to focus on Him. CWO has made a cute little button that I will be putting in my side bar to help me remember and I'll link both of these sites under the button. I'll be going to each of these sites daily, with my bible in hand, and notebook and pen, and hopefully an open heart to hear from the Lord. I'm not expecting to spend hours there. But just a small portion to start and end my day. This is my first small step.
Now I want to wish all you who come by place a wonderful year, full of all of God's best for you and your families. I am so very thankful for each one of you I have "met" through blogging. You bless me with your comments, you insights and your sense of humor each day. I'm looking forward to another year spent visiting with all of you!
