Last night, Keith, Gavin, and I rang in the new year with some of our absolute favorite people. We spent the night eating delicious gumbo and potato salad (made by my sweet sis), playing Battle of the Sexes, watching the LSU/Clemson game, and ending the night playing a name-that-actor/movie game. All in all it was the perfect way to end 2012.
As we enjoy the first day of 2013, I can’t help but think about what I’d like to accomplish this year. I don’t like to make resolutions, because I know that they likely won’t happen. Come March, they’ll be forgotten and that will be that. However, I do like to make goals, put them in writing, and stick them on my vanity so that I can see them everyday. So, here’s what I’m thinking for 2013.
1. Grow in my relationship with Jesus. Soak up His word and let Him lead the way.
That is all.
The way I figure, if I do this one thing, then everything else will fall into place. Becoming a better mom and wife, living a healthier lifestyle, tackling my 30 Before 30, following the cry of my heart…all of those things will happen. Why’s that? Well, because when my spirit is fed, I thrive. When I study His word, my heart soars. And when I stop trying to control everything (which is extremely hard for me to do) all my worries fade and things just work out. 🙂
I pray that you guys are enjoying today, and that this year will be filled with love!
