Point is, I made some.
So, I made some resolutions which I haven't done since nineteen-ninety-nevah. I've mostly been one of those gals who can keep her ducks in a row and push through. Resolutions, I've always thought, were more or less for failures.
adorable baby girl Bird into my world? Right? Go here...she's quite the stunner. She was however, I reiterate, my THIRD child. How does that Duggar lady do it?
Kaylee's daily dose of awesomeness and my sheer will to make my sons take a nap helped me limp to the end of 2011. Kaylee left as planned, Christmas came, and sprinkled throughout all of that was a lot of frustration and anger. It came outta nowhere and man o' man did I need some freshness like the Prince of Bel-air.
In no particular order, with the ones I've done/am-doing crossed out:
* Read "Shepherding Your Child's Heart"
* Read "Grace Based Parenting"
* Memorize Ephesians
* Set aside 2 days a week to get alone and pray.
Impressed are we?
And as a virgin-resolutioner I am pleased to be knockin' these bad boys out like the Godfather did his haters. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
But the Hobbit? That is simply because I made it all the way through approximately 17 years of schooling without ever reading it...and Petey Jackson is making it into a movie and who wants to show up to the opening in December as the non-well-read person? Not I, said the cat.
Y'all wanna hear how hawt my hubs is? Joker memorized Philippians last year. The. Book. of. Philippians. Dang.
The early to rise thing will make it on the next list, maybe. 2025-ish. Until then, I thought hiding a little of God's word in my heart would be good. I want to be able to quote it and meditate on it anytime time of day. It's already helping on those days when I act like a Christian who Paul needs to write a strongly worded letter to, Corinthians!! (Really? Bible joke? And you're still reading this?)
The prayer thing has been a failure because of lack of planning and then lack of schedules coinciding and then lack of the triple nap. Getting there, getting there.
Ellie Bird's blanket has a few pieces cut out, but not much else. I have til the end of the year and even then, she won't be in a big girl bed yet. But here's for batting a thousand my first time out.
Did you make any resolutions this year?
You sticking with it?
