Be Resolved

I am not one to be given over to procrastination so even though it’s only New Year’s Eve I’m going to go ahead and consider my resolutions for 2006…There, I feel much better.

All seriousness aside, I think resolutions are critical to the decision-making process. Just try and make one decision without a resolution, for example, decide to stop reading this article without resolving to do so. See? It’s nearly impossible to click away isn’t it?...Well Isn’t it?… Hey!!!….Hellooooo??

I like my resolutions to start or end with “If”.

“I’m going to be a better husband…if Corry doesn’t prevent me”.

“If I have the time…I’m going to study more”.

“I’m going to do everything perfectly…if nothing goes wrong”.

Now those are resolutions I can keep!

And finally, “I resolve to try and keep my resolutions”.

I’m so glad I don’t have a problem with commitment. ;-)

May God bless you all during the next year according to His loving will.

LOL!

I truly need to make some resolutions. I don't want to put it off.

I think I'll make them Jan 2.

Good thinking, KC.

I never bother making resolutions myself; I should seek to be lead by the Spirit every day and be faithful to God's Word. Some pious thoughts for tonight.

Every Blessing in Christ

After this past year, I dare even breathe in this moment on the edge of yet another "new" year.

I had high hopes and dreams for this past year after the two horrid ones I'd have before, but those were quickly shattered when I had an attack of appendicitis the third week into the new year 2005 and ended up in the hospital once again. The rest of the year went pretty much down hill from there!

But, we're still here. We are extremely blessed have our home and each other and some semblance of health.

So, I make no resolutions, only offer prayers. That God will guide me through each day to come, one day at a time, and that His work among His people all over this land who have come to work and minister here in Katrina Zone will continue and flourish, beginning with me.

I pray that my husband will be strengthened and held up until he can find the employees and help he so desperately needs because he is so deeply fatigued and worn. I pray and ask you all to pray with me.

I thank God for bringing us safely in His care through all our struggles and lifting us up and holding us close in this trying year.

I thank God for all of you who have so encouraged me and who have laughed with me at times in my wackiness just to stay sane with God's gracious senses of humor He has so blessed us with.

Happy new year to you all.

Dee

P. S. I'll be a better wife, too, if Tom lets me! He's always throwing big obstacles in my path. ha!

I have already resolved to delay my resolutions.

Since it is not time yet, this is a pre-resolution.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I resolve to make some resolutions, if I can get over the fear of not being able to keep them.

I'm gonna start calling them my new years revolutions... I think it's catchy and seems more militant!!

(maybe that'll make me stick with tem a little better...)

blessings to you this year, kc.

Dee we're praying for you and Tom. I am trusting God to give all of you what you need and to bless you all in the recovery. I can't even imagine how horrible it must be for those who are without His constant presence.

Just this week Corry and I were able to get in to the last part of Dauphin island and view the damage. I plan to post some pics soon.

Joe I know that planning ahead like that can make all the difference when it's time to put things off again. ;-)

Seeker you've found the magic formula! I never thought of adding fear in the mix. That will insure you never even have to make a resolution. ;-)

Jeff, militant really describes some of the resolutions I've read here. They read like some that Hitler or Castro might make. "I'm not going to let him think..." or "I'll never let him know...". Total mind control!

I pray God continues to bless you and your wonderful family in the coming year. ;-)

I made a resolution long ago not to make any more resolutions...it is the only one I have kept.

Adam I think you've decided against "new year" resolutions but I see the evidence of your resolve constantly! I love you brother. ;-)

I really liked that post, kc!!
Resolutions are a funny thing.
My mother made a resolution a couple of days ago that I heard about through the grapevive: Not to be so blunt. Ha ha ha! Sometimes these can at least reveal that a person is somewhat aware of a need in their life/character.
My resolution: not to be so sensitive. (see how mine and my mom's sort of complement one another? ...or do they cancel eachother out?) :~)

Rose so true. These resolutions really are telling. I can appreciate your sensativity concerning your mother. It seems that no matter how mature we are our tendancy to define ourselves in our parents eyes never fully departs from us. My prayers for you, John and yours remain. ;-)
