New Year’s Resolutions…Finally.

So, it’s day six of the new year and today is the first day I’ve even thought about New Year’s Resolutions. I guess with Lydia’s birthday so soon after Christmas and the New Year, I feel like it’s just a continuation of the holidays. Fun for her, tiring for me.

I’ve never been one to make resolutions…or maybe I just don’t stick with them. Regardless, I am facing this new empty page of a year with hopes for…well, for MORE. Of course, I’m not meaning more STUFF, in fact, I’d like LESS of the junk that fills up our house. What I want to see is more organization, more discipline, more focus on the quotidian, more fun, more development of Lydia and Asa, more growth and just MORE. One of my very favorite verses is from Ephesians 3:20

Now to him [God] who is able to do immeasurably MORE than all we ask or imagine, according to his power at work that is within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
(emphasis mine)

And that is what I want for this year. I want to see MORE than I could even ask for or imagine. More than I could articulate in a list of resolutions. I just want MORE for my family, my daughter, my son, my husband, for myself. And I pray the same for you.



  1. That’s a good resolution. I’m with you on the organization part. I’ve also set up a “not allowed to break it no matter what” schedule for Bible reading. Somehow my Bible seems to get lost in a mountain of text books. So, that’s my resolution… the first year I’ve made them.. well I also have to block 5 numbers from my phone. Project: be one of the only people hardcore enough to stick to resolutions. 🙂

  2. One of the best resolutions I’ve read so far. More of Him and less of me.

  16. I tend not to comment, but I read some of the remarks on New Year’s Resolutions…Finally. | I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or do some of the responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list of all of all your social networking pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  17. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
