My Hopes for 2010

i LOVE beginning the New Year!!! There is just something so refreshing about having a fresh, new start...a "do-over" you might say, each year. No matter how the previous year treated you, you always get another chance to make the next one better : ) I have many areas in my life that I need to improve on this year, but I have narrowed it down to 5 specifics I am going to focus on for 2010. My goals for 2010 are the following:

1. Develop a deeper, closer and more intimate relationship with God. He has blessed me in every aspect of my life and I owe it to Him to give my time and love back to Him. He MUST become my FIRST priority!

2. Be a better wife. It's not that I think I am a bad wife now, ha! But Mikey is such a wonderful husband and he deserves everything I have to give to him. I pray that I can be the wife the Lord wants me to be.

3. Give more to others. This includes money, my time, gifts, etc. Sadly, I have never really focused on this area much in my life, but now is the time to start! I hope to find some sort of childrens' organization in our area to work with : )

4. Save money. We are working on becoming debt free so we can give to God and others freely! I can't wait for those days!!!! : ) But until then, I just keep asking the Lord to give us the determination and discipline we need to reach this goal.

5. I want to learn how to use my camera!!!! We bought a GREAT camera about this time last year, but don't really know how to get the most out of it. I bought a book specific to our camera and hope to become a pro with it by the end of this new year : )

I think I have set some exciting goals to work toward this new year! I hope I can live up to them ALL! I am SO EXCITED to see what 2010 has planned for us!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
