I am Determined

Two years ago, I chose a word that would be my word for 2008. That word was "Simplify" and I loved it so much, I used it again in 2009. Silly me. . . .but you can't blame me. I'm devoted.

This year - although I'm hanging onto "Simplify" as my sub-title, I have chosen the word "Determined" as my one little word for this year.

Why determined? Oh, there are lots of reasons. Some are more frivolous than others, I suppose.

I am determined:

*to make some necessary health changes this year
*to get organized
*to make better use of my free time (reflected in both previous statements)
*to READ (books)
*to quilt
*to take pictures. . .and then scrapbook them
*to decrease my caffeine intake
*to increase my water intake
*to read my Bible
*to finish projects that need to be completed
*to blog more frequently - but not obsessively

And now here's where the rubber meets the road. . . so to speak

I am determined to be strong - even when the world and other forces want to take away my joy.

I am determined to be bold and full of faith - even when science and the media shout other messages in my direction.

I am determined to see my faith come to fruition - and I fully intend to see a miracle or two. (Maybe more. . . .)

Whether you have chosen a "one little word" for your year, or not, you can always choose one. I encourage you to do it--and if you're looking for one, "Simplify" is up for grabs.

Happy New Year!!

p.s. Thanks, Laura. That was just the kick-in-the-pants I needed.

Happy New Year Angie! Glad you decided to continue to hang out in blog land a while... we all love to read your stories and see your pictures, whenever you have time to post them! Best of luck with your goals for the year... I suppose I ought to make a few of my own, huh? Maybe the first one will be, to update my blog header so it doesn't say Dec. 2009 anymore ;-)

Love ya!

I guess my word is optimism. I think you will meet all your goals... yes, even the miracle one!
