Happy New Year

A new year! We've come this far by faith. And we will continue on, living in faith during the year ahead of us. We have been blessed and we will be blessed again. Of this I'm sure.

I don't make New Year's resolutions anymore - I set goals. Little goals. Goals that are possible. Goals that have a reason for the effort. One at a time goals. Big ones - small ones. Affecting my life with other people. Some only affecting me. Goals that can be seen with my eyes. Goals seen only by my heart. I once read that something can only be a goal if it has a beginning and an end - a recognizable accomplishment. You will know when you've achieved it.

So - I had better get started. I can't achieve it unless I begin. Throughout the year ahead I will share my goals with you. Some only when they have been accomplished. Some will be seen in pictures. Others will only be told.

For you, dear friends, I wish a Happy New Year. From the bottom of my heart.

Goals are dreams with deadlines.

  4. Adrienne, I like that. . . goals instead of resolutions. Good way to think of them in a more positive, accomplishable way. Resolutions just sounds like a failure word to me. I resolve to eat better, I resolve to spend more time with the Lord, as opposed to my goal is to eat healthier, my goal is to make more time for prayer.

    Yes, yes, I like that WAY better.
