With this new year I am making some new commitments. Mostly to myself, well actually all of them are to myself.
Commitment #1 - Tomorrow is the 9th anniversary of my 30th birthday. I have decided to commit to myself that by the time I reach my birthday next year (the big 40) I want to be healthier. I would like to loose about 20lbs. I need to start weight training and I really want to get into the habit of spending time with the Lord on a daily basis. These are all things that will help me become healthier.
I have yet to figure out how I will accomplish these items - I'll let you know!
Commitment #2 - I would like to write new posts weekly - SHOCKER, I know, now you can pick yourself off the floor either from laughing or fainting. I have been through a lot this year that I haven't written about. Several times I would sit down to write but then I wouldn't know how to get the thoughts into a written document. Sometimes I would just have these crazy yet realistic one liners and would think "Is it worth putting on the blog?" Finally I realized that the whole point of doing this was to share what God has been doing in my life. Even if it is a one liner, who knows who that can help or effect. So my commitment #2 is that you will see something new here each week - even if it is just a Hello!
Commitment #3 - Love - I need to have an attitude of Love. Enough said about that.
Commitment #4 - Proverbs 31:10 - 31, that is the kind of wife and mother I want to be for my family. After God, they are my priority and I need to keep it that way. "A wise woman builds her home...." Proverbs 14:1
Commitment #5 - Proverbs 31:8-9, "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice." That is the kind of person I want to be, there are issues that I feel strongly about and I feel that God is saying "Now is the time to stand up and speak, speak with love and respect, that way I will be heard." I am passionate about children having the opportunity to flourish and learn no matter what their circumstances are."
What Commitments can you make this year?
