Out with the old, in with the new

Do y’all make New Year’s resolutions?  I never really have.  I figure God has a work to do in me pretty much on a daily basis, so… well, you know. 

But, there is a lot of good that comes from setting goals and planning for the future. 

I looked up the top 10 New Year’s resolutions for 2009.  Here they are:

1.  Spend more time with family and friends

Suz Me and Mom 072608

2.  Fit in fitness (exercise)

Asics Gel-Nimbus 10

3.  Tame the bulge (diet)

Healthy eating

4.  Quit smoking

5.  Enjoy life more (reduce stress)

6.  Quit drinking

7.  Get out of debt/Save money

8.  Learn something new

9.  Help others

If you’re interested in reading the Bible through in 2009, starting tomorrow, our pastor is beginning a new blog, called “Living by the Book” which will include a daily devotional and suggested reading that will take you through the entire Bible this year!!  To access it, click here.

Thank you all for reading my blog this year – your comments really make it so much more fun!!  I look forward to reading about all of your lives throughout the coming year.

I hope that your New Year’s Eve is safe and fun and filled with friends and laughter – and that 2009 is a year of great blessing for you all!!

Happy New Year!!

I had to laugh out loud at the picture of the poor disorganized lady. How funny!

I don't really make New Year resolutions either. One thing I do hope to do is to appreciate the time I have left on this earth more.

Happy New Year Jacquie!!!

Hi Jacquie,
My main resolution has always been to lose weight. I always gain a few pounds over the month of December.
Happy New Year to you and your family!
