i woke this morning and once again started what i’ve started every year for the past…well, i don’t even know how many times i’ve started, only to fail miserably come april.
i began to think about this brand new, fresh start, open the new calender, year ahead of us. i’ll be honest. 2012 was a good year for the knudsens. while there were injuries and disagreements. surgeries and hurt feelings. missed performances and multiple unexpected financial expenses. there were 4.0’s in the honors program. there was enough money for vacation. there was beginning of a new job adventure. friendships formed. relationships strengthened. clear biopsies. mission trips and seeing the hand of the Lord in our lives over and over.
i have this weird dysfunctional mind that looks back on 2012 and many of the details of 2012 and wonder will 2013 be as good? be full of blessing? will we have more trials than blessings? more expenses that cash flow?
i don’t know. but i do know one thing. my prayer is this, that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to Him. no matter what comes my way.
my goals are simple for 2013.
while i know goals are supposed to be quantifiable. “do less’ and ‘be more’ are not measurable words. but in my mind they’re gonna work for me.
sure there are more things i want to do. more things i hope to accomplish, at the end of the day, these are things that i hope to accomplish~
drink more water.
love others well.
encourage my girls.
spend time with Him every. single. day.
intentional. focused. more of “them” less of “me”. identify the love languages of those i love and love them out of those. say something to build up my little women every day. honor dan in how i manage our home and manage my heart. spend quality time in His word reading His words. praying and connecting with His heart. learning His will. intentional. focused. more of “them” less of me”
happy new year my friends!
