The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Happy New Year all my blogger lovelies! I can't believe it's the first day of 2010. It seems not too long ago that I had a ton of high hopes for 2009. Don't worry 2009. You were good to me and I am grateful.

As I sit here with the relentless buzzing of Jay's helicopter in my ear (yes, he's still flying it around the living room), I can't help but be excited for what 2010 may bring to my life. I started a list of 52 things I want to accomplish this year. Some are trivial, some are important. It always makes my heart happy to cross something off a list.

Of course, the crazy in me wants to plan it all out and assign certain things to certain weeks but I'm trying not to. Whenever I do that, something always comes up where an item doesn't get done and then I feel like it's all gone to pot and I just give up. So here goes to being carefree about my list. I'll keep you updated as I cross things off.

The biggest thing I want to accomplish this year is to love and serve my Lord more and more everyday. Everything else is just gravy.

Love ya'll!

Love your last paragraph, isn't that the TRUTH!? Amen, amen, amen! Whether 2010 be full of immense blessing or complete with fiery trials, when our faith is in our Lord and Savior we can handle it all! Good word, dear sister ('cause we are, in Jesus!).

Thank you Jill for my wonderful new notebook. I wrote in it for the first time today. I am going to try and find all the fear not's in the bible and study them. Today was on worrying. It will take more than one day to write all I need to know about worrying, but the jist is
WHAT GOOD IS IT GOING TO DO? God is in control and worry doesn't help, but Prayer does.

52 that's intimidating! I started my lists, but I got lost... I need to get back to it.

Happy New Year!!

Oh my... crossing off an item on a list... the best, ever! I made a short list. Hope to cross off "Break up with Diet Pepsi" first. That would be joyous. Happy New Year...

Happy New Year, Jill.
