Happy New Year from my family to yours!!!
I have a list of resolutions that I seem to start every year off with. They are the exact same every year........ Lose 30 pounds (maybe this will be my year?), get more organized (I feel like that's hopeless with little kids. ha!), and read the Bible through this year (I usually get close). I'm starting off this year with the same list but I've decided I just want to focus on one thing.
I know that's a buzz word that everyone seems to throw around. But I went to a Celebration Service for my friend Janet on Monday and I was so struck by how she lived her life. She was intentional. She used every chance she had to share her faith. She loved her family deeply. She went out of her way to make people feel loved , important and included. She would pray with and for total strangers. She was the kind of person who had like 50 best friends. And she made them all feel like they were the MOST important. She lived exactly like I want the next 50 years of my life to go. (or less - I may be like her and only have 10 years left or this could be my last year - I have no idea what God has planned). Janet lived her 51 years to the fullest and she has left a huge mark on my life.
So I'm going to try harder with my family to make them feel important and loved.
I'm going to call, text and write my friends more often to let them know how much they mean to me.
I'm going to go out of my way to do things for people who need it.
I'm going to go out of my way to invite people to things and to make people feel welcome.
I'm going to share Jesus every chance I get.
I'm not just going to read my Bible - I'm going to study it, savor it, memorize it.
I'm hoping I can be intentional with what I do in this space.
Thank you for reading here! I feel like you are all my BFF's! We are going to start back with Show us Your Life in a few weeks and a SINGLE FRIDAY is coming up VERY SOON! So get ready for that!!!!!
Praying 2014 is the best year yet for you !!!!!
