Got Resolution?

It may be a bit cliche to make resolutions for the New Year, but there's value to be gained by taking a close look at your life and making some decisions about what you can improve...and having the resolution to carry through with those decisions. My list is short...these are things I am going to do, not simply try to do:
  1. Develop a closer relationship with God.
  2. Cherish my husband, my children and loved ones and put aside the daily stuff that tends to come between us.
  3. Put together family albums with all those pictures that are stored in boxes and on our computer. I think I'll start with our wedding pictures...it'll be 12 years in a few weeks. Sharing our memories with our children gives them an important connection to the past.
  4. Take better care of myself physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  5. Post here about my progress.
Do you have any resolutions? I'd love to hear about them:-)

  2. I like your goals--and that you "will" do them, not just try! I need to work on my photos, too-one of those things I keep putting off!

  3. It's far to easy for me to just say "I tried" and then give up:-)
    This way I stay honest.

  4. I agree with the other ladies who commented. Your resolutions are some really good ones! I didn't publicly post my resolutions (perhaps I should as extra motivation!), but I did make a few in my mind. One is that I AM going to make it top priority to read my Bible and pray every single day no matter how busy my life gets!! I am very consistent about doing Bible reading and prayer time with the kids each morning before we start school, but I haven't been very consistent about doing my own personal Bible study and prayer time. I am doing Mrs. White's Bible study right now, so that has helped so much. When that is over in a couple of months, though, I plan to keep up the new routine and to be very consistent about it. Also, I am going to try to be sure I have the house somewhat straightened up and dinner ready when my hubby gets home from work each evening. He never complains when the house is a mess or dinner isn't ready, but I'm sure it must bother him. I want to honor him by trying to do a better job in those areas. Oh yes, I too have tons of pictures in boxes and stored on my computer. It's not "top" priority right now, but I really do need to get to work on those as well. I love scrapbooking, so maybe if I can just get myself to print them out, I can enjoy scrapbooking them.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed your resolutions post!! You have motivated me. :)
