Welcome, 2014!!

Yesterday, the post I shared reminisced on the past year and I'm glad I took the time to do that because it made me realize how I want to move forward.

We didn't make any fancy plans last night because Tim had to work today but I did have a blast because I was with my husband and that's ALL THAT MATTERS! We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner and then hung out with friends from church and played games until the ball dropped. 

I created 13 goals last January and I was very disappointed in myself after seeing that I stuck with very few of them. SOOOO this year I won't bore you with 14 goals because I am only going to focus on one.


We will have a lot of big and small decisions to face this year (like buying a house). I tend to stress and worry about a lot of things so I just want to give all to God. My mother-in-law got us a Our Daily Bread Devotional for Christmas that I am very excited about. It will allow me some time each day to pray, read the bible and reflect which I honestly haven't done much of lately.

I know having one goal to focus on for the year will make it more attainable for me and I can always add more from month to month (like doing another 40 day challenge).  Also, if I get this one right, everything else will fall into place!!

Is prayer on anyone else's list?
What are your goals for this year?

  1. Well if you're only going to have one goal, this is the perfect goal/resolution for the new year! You got this girl!

  2. mmm what a good goal to have. Me too!

  3. Wonderful goal! I've been looking for a new devotional so I'll have to look into that one. This year I have a goal for each month, so one particular goal to focus on each month. I hope that helps me keep accountable all year. Good luck and happy new year!

  4. I just started the She Reads Truth devotional on prayer. It's definitely something I need to work on in my own life.

  5. hope you have a great new year!!
