a tapestry of thoughts and aphorisms from my journey
I'll start the fun: My resolution is to really see my neighborhood experience Christ in a refreshing way this year through my life.
I WANT TO GET MARRIED!! tee hee hee!!! And to get closer to God. I know that sounds very Sunday Schoolish but its the truth and has been weighing heavy on my heart. I dont EVER remember a time in my life where I have felt so distant from the Lord and even the Church as a body. cool post by the way!
I second Emily on the whole getting married thing... or at least finding someone that might be a prospect. I know that technically, God should be our #1, but I'd like to be a close #2 to someone... even if that just meant as a friend...And I rememeber thinking last year about how I'd love to be closer to God, well, He's taught me and I think I've grown but I don't feel any closer... I'm praying that God puts such a huge desire in my heart... b/c me trying to use my own motivation gets me nowhere. Happy New Year's!
i would really like to get my doghouse sold...and pay off some of them feed store bills...but actually, all of that is beyond my control...why...because i am where God put me...doing what He has me doing...so..all i can really do is stick to what i am doing...
One resoultion I have made for this year is to get serious with the discipline of fasting
Few things-*more spiritual disciplines (fasting, mediation, extended sabbaths, memorization are at the top of the list)*devoted one on one time with my wife weekly *weight loss/work out issues*releasing leaders to expand the Kingdom through Mosaic*honoring God, encouraging the Body and loving the worldOn a few other notes.....1) New Picture eh? Looks like you have just rebuked a 7th grader for trying to climb out the back of the van...while it was still moving!2) What's up with the copyright stuff? I thought there was "noting new under the sun" hahahahaLove ya brother. Happy 2006.
Yeah, nothing new alright. It's more to keep people from changing my stuff to make me say something I didn't. I've had a couple of web sites quote me or "cut-n-paste" my stuff on their sites, and I want to maintain original intent, and not get misquoted or changed...not that there is anything really worth while here!
I have many hopes and dreams for this year as it has already been a busy year for me and we are only 12 days in.I hope that my marriage will be as solid and standing as some of the great marriages I see modeled around me. I am honestly excited to start pre-marital counseling and get into talking with my fiance' more than we already do. We are communicators beyond belief and spend so much time talking about deep stuff that I can't wait.I want my future household to be one built on God's Plan for it and not just what my fiance and I want. We are making the changes we need to make to do that.I also want to keep up with my weight loss and show off the hard work and keep it up!Jenn from Garland/Dallas
my resolution (even though it's 12 days late) is to learn how to know God. To constantly have a longing to meet with him, and to learn from him. To devote myself to loving his people, and letting him love through me in the areas I am not capable. It's a nice resolution, if i do say so myself, however... is it possible? If i have faith, surely... I can strive to work at it... and learn daily. God has something to teach us at all times :).
