Can you believe it is really 2012! I can't believe how fast this year flew by!
I am not going to go down a big long list of resolutions for you...sure I plan to eat better, work out more, read my Bible more, be a better wife and mother (ok, so there is my list ;-)) but above all else this year I am going to work on my biggest struggle - being content!
Proverbs 19:23 ~ The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
2011 was an extremely trying year for us with some really big struggles and changes. I am so pleased to say that looking back, we have come such a long way and God has truly blessed our hard work and perseverance. However so many times I catch myself only looking forward and seeing what a long journey we still have in front of us, instead of focusing on how far we have come.
It is amazing to me how each day of my life I catch myself wishing I had something else. I know how good I have it and how God has truly blessed us, but yet I still continue to envy others. I have always done this, but I feel that it is even worse now that I have started blogging because I continually compare my home, my writing and my life to others.
So instead of making my list of resolutions to try to stick to, I am going to remind myself each and every day to be content and my journey towards my goals.
There will always be someone smarter than me, prettier than me, a home nicer than mine, better behaved children then mine, better clothes than mine...okay I better stop before I get depressed ha ha!
I look forward to this year of sharing my success's and failures with you all. I hope each one of you has a truly blessed year!
