For many years, I have not made resolutions. I learned from years past, I don't keep them anyway.
I can't tell you how many times I resolved to lose weight. It lasted about 2 days.
I've resloved to be a better Mom, wife, friend, housekeeper, you name it.
I've resolved to be more organized, do more charitable work, or catch up on bookwork, only to forget about it in....about 2 days.
For the last few months, I have stressed over my weight, family, finances, our future (retirement or lack of) and too many other situations I have no control over.
So, for the last few days, as I was thinking about 2010 and what I want for us and our family, I have realized where I am going wrong. It's not what I want, but what God wants for me. It's not that I have not always known that, because I am a Christian and I love the Lord and know he has a plan for me and those I love.
But, I have always been an "I can do it myself" kinda girl. It's only when I give up control to Him that things fall into place.
So, as a resolution (or prayer) this year, I am committed to being quiet and listening to what God has to say to me about certain situations. This is one resoulution I am relying on my Lord to help me with. I'm not going to try to do it "by myself", but am listening to what he wants me to do.
I wish for all of you who read this all the best the New Year has to offer. I look forward to my blogging experiences, as it has opened doors to people, friendships and situations, I had never dreamed it could.
A very Happy 2010 to all.
