Happy New Year everybody!
I don't normally make New Year's resolutions, but this one I've been wanting to do for a long time and I think if I make it public it will make me more accountable.
I want to read through the Bible in one year.
I have never actually done this. As a matter of fact, I cannot say with any certainty that I have ever read through the entire Bible. Rather embarrassing to admit actually. So, I am committing to doing this.
There are several different read-through-the-Bible-in-a-year programs out there and I have decided to do this one. I like it because you read something from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs every day! They also have a neat feature where you can enter your own start date - which means there's no reason to wait till 2010!
I have a few other goals as well - like finishing off that baby weight loss, getting more organized (Flylady is helping with that), being on the computer less and improving in my role as a mother to my wonderful four children and as a wife to my amazing husband.
I want to be more pro-active and less re-active in my parenting.
I want to be even more intentional about teaching them what a relationship with Jesus is all about.
I want to allow myself to be the fun parent sometimes too - I need to realize that playing with my kids counts as getting stuff done!
So, what are your New Year's resolutions?
