A New Year…New Resolutions

by | January 21, 2016

If you don’t already know it, I will tell you…I am horrible at keeping up with our blog! Maybe being better about writing posts should be on my list of resolutions for 2016!
It’s hard to believe that 2015 is behind us and a new year has begun!…It’s hard to believe that Carson is already eight months old and it seems like yesterday that I was holding him for the first time!…It’s hard to believe that I have been married to my beautiful Sweetheart, Erin, for over two years!…It’s hard to believe how fast time is passing by.
The new year took me by surprise. I really like to plan and mentally prepare and anticipate for what might take place in a given year, but this year, I am definitely behind. With January almost gone, I feel like I am trying to play “catch up.” =) One of the items on my mental list of things to do is to make resolutions. I was inspired when I saw Erin’s list of resolutions. Each one was from her heart and each one was carefully thought out. I was truly challenged and motivated by her desire to set goals for herself that will directly affect our family. I love her dearly and I am so proud of her. I will have to say that I am not as brave as Erin is in posting her resolutions, but I do have a list that I have begun, a set of goals now for 2016 to help me stay on track and keep pressing forward.
Our little family is looking forward to this new year. Times are uncertain, but we have today to enjoy and to try and be blessing to those we love and know and those we meet along the way.
A friend at church gave this verse to me, and I have chosen it as one of my theme verses for this year. It’s an amazing promise of God’s goodness.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”
Isaiah 26:3-4

God bless!
