Those Dreadful Resolutions

(Ha! This just made me giggle. Definitely something a woman would say!)

I've already posted before about how I don't make resolutions. I just don't.

Resolutions are just something I'm destined to fail at so I spare myself the disappointment.

My real "resolutions" take place every day. 

I resolve to be a better wife, mother, friend, child of God each day and then the next day I do the same. By grace ... that's the only way I can be good at any of these things. Trust me. It's only by God's grace. And, even then, sometimes I choose to go around that grace and do my own thing, which is when I fail miserably.

Thank God for that grace He gives me. He's SO good to me.

I think if my number one "resolution" per say would always be to love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, everything else will just fall into place. Then, there would be no reason for those dreadful other resolutions we always make each year.

This verse pretty much sums it up:
He must become more important (increase), and I must become less important (decrease). John 3:30

So as I do make plans to organize quite a bit of things in my house and life, I want to keep that one verse in mind. Not just in mind, but put it in practice.

Now ...

speaking of decreasing, I'm hoping to make my return to the gym this morning after a long sabbatical. I'd like to decrease in multiple ways. 

Hope you and yours have a prosperous & blessed 2012! 

Burning the cabbage on New Year's Day is OK, right? It's not a bad sign at all.
