Happy New Year

What are your goals for the New Year? Are they the "usual?" Eat less, exercise more, feel better, look better, make better choices? Why do we set ourselves up for the same fall every year. We let ourselves down and then beat ourselves up! Whatever happen to "loving" ourselves, taking care of ourselves, and I don't just mean the outside. We have to feed our spirits. When we let that go, everything else goes, because we cannot do it all. No matter who we are or how hard we try. One of my goals for the New Year is to grow closer to God. When I am as close to him as I can possibly be, I am a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and everything else I need to be! I make better choices, speak kindly, walk softly, listen better and pay attention to what he shows me needs my attention. He made me and knows what is best for me. With his power and strength, I can do all things. Now there is a New Year's Goal I cannot fail at! What does he have in store for you this year? We all can come up higher, and closer in our walk with Christ. Let's strengthen and encourage each other, as the day of his return draws near. Happy New Year!
