Hello...I don't make New Years Resolutions. I used to when I was younger, but I never stuck to them. That was before I was born again. Now, I just let the Lord shape me and mold me into the Christian woman/mother/wife that he wants me to be. This is an ongoing process, each year is different. I just let the Lord do his work each year. Its not always smooth sailing, but I just keep going on.Thank you.
Marianne had difficulty posting this comment, due to computer glitches. So, I'm posting it for her. I wanted to let people know about this book, "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived" by Steven F Scott. You can learn more about it at his web site: http://www.stevenfscott.com It is based on the Book of Proverbs, and is excellent for setting goals and achieving great things in your personal and professional life.Your Guru-ette on the Net,Marianne McEachernhttp://www.GuruetteOnTheNet.comSuccess Consultant-Master Coordinatorhttp://www.ipowerdirect.net/86.html
Anonymous, I love your post and you put into words things I have often thought. God has ordained our days and his resolutions may look very different than ours. Thanks for putting it so beautifully.
I stopped making New Year's Resolutions too. It's too much pressure to put on myself. But this year there are several things that I would like to do. We now have a reliable babysitter that we know that lives near us, so my husband and I will have more dates this year, starting tomorrow! :)I'm also going to schedule a visit to the dentist (which I havent been to in years) I'm also going to buy a new pair of shoes that I need, and now that my husband is making more money, I can afford it. This year I'm just going to do little stuff that I've been putting off for a long time. But no official weight loss goals! I've tried for years to loose weight without any success, so I'm not going to that kind of pressure myself anymore.Lisa
Lisa,I love how you are planning dates for your marriage. We often neglect our marriages when we become parents. I right there with you on the weight loss thing. I did listen to a Tony Evans CD once and he talked about praying daily about what you eat and allowing the Holy Spirit to control your appetite as well. I have been trying that some this new year. I also don't like to exercise, so that doesn't help much. Appreciate you sharing and you are right it is not good to put pressure on ourselves.
That's a good idea. I've been praying for years for the Lord to help me loose weight, but not specifically that the Holy Spirit would control my appetite. I walk at lunch until it's too cold to go outside, but even walking for 30 minutes, enough to work up a light sweat, did nothing to help. I'm going to start up again, I know it always helps some, even if it's so I dont get so winded when I walk longer distances. Thanks again for letting me ramble! :) Lisa
Lisa,You are welcome to ramble anytime. I'm impressed with the walking. I need to do more of that. I guess I want quick, effective exercise. Maybe a pipe dream. Keep up updated.
